John ShawThe publisher has decided that the originally planned book "Playing 1.e4 - Sicilian & French" will now be replaced by two books, as the amount of material being too great for one book. The two new books are:
Playing 1.e4 - French Defence and Sicilian Sidelines
Playing 1.e4 - Sicilian Main LinesSample pages (pdf)
In this, the last of three volumes on 1.e4, GM John Shaw completes his state-of-the-art White repertoire by tackling the biggest challenge of all: the main lines of the Sicilian Defence. Just like the other two books in the series, this book is based upon a foundation of tried and tested main lines, boosted by a number of innovative suggestions that will cause no end of trouble to your opponents.
Including the Dragon, Taimanov, Sveshnikov and concluding with the nefarious Najdorf, this book provides everything you need to face all the major Sicilian systems with confidence.
John Shaw is a grandmaster and three-time Scottish Champion.
Publication due end of May 2018, approx. 449 pages.
