This new series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. 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. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.
The Sicilian Scheveningen is a popular opening and was a firm favourite of Garry Kasparov, who successfully demonstrated how to gain counterplay and strive to win from its solid foundations.
In this book, Sicilian expert Lorin D’Costa invites you to join him in examining the opening. He highlights the typical plans and tactics for both sides, constructs a repertoire for Black and provides answers to all the key questions.
