The Sveshnikov is undeniably one of the most dynamic and aggressive Sicilians available these days.
Most recently, it was made popular again by World Champion Magnus Carlsen in his match against Fabiano Caruana at the end of 2018.
The main lines lead to complex positions, and a deep knowledge and understanding of the opening is a real necessity for any player who wishes to enter this battlefield.
Author, Robert Ris, focuses on all the current developments, highlighting the most important and instructive games from recent years, using his own over-the board experiences.
Using 39 complete games he examines the main lines with 9.Bxf6, and 9.Nd5, as well as the modern 7.Nd5 system. He also considers earlier deviations by White, thereby providing a complete guide to playing the Sveshnikov Sicilian.
Ris is well known for his theoretical knowledge and overall opening expertise. Here he provides Sicilian players with an up-to date arsenal for playing the Sveshnikov.
