The Sicilian Scheveningen is more of a system, rather than just an opening where moves have to be remembered by rote. A general understanding of pawn structures and typical strategies and tactics will be much more useful here than in many openings.
In this book, Sicilian expert Lorin D'Costa invites you to join him in examining the opening. He highlights the plans and tactics for both sides, constructs a practical repertoire for Black against all White's major attacking setups and provides answers to the key questions about the opening.
Move by Move is a series of books which uses a question and answer format to emulate - as far as possible - lessons involving chess teachers and students. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn.
Lorin D'Costa is an International Master and a full-time chess teacher. He coaches some of the top chess schools in the UK, some of England's very strongest juniors, and also the England team at World and European Youth Championships.
