The Sicilian Defense, 1.e4 c5, is one of the popular chess openings. In this book several chess grandmasters present state-of-the-art analysis of lines where White meets the Sicilian by avoiding the Open variations.
The editors, 2007 British Champion GM Jacob Aagaard and three-time Scottish Champion GM John Shaw, have recruited a line-up of strong chess grandmasters to share their expert opinions both on how to play the Sicilian Defense and how to play against it.
Jacob Aagaard is a chess grandmaster and ex-British Champion.
John Shaw is a chess grandmaster and three-time Scottish Champion.
"Like all books from Quality Chess, this is a pleasure to handle and use: the production values are excellent: pleasing design, good paper, ample diagrams. The only minus point I can think of in this respect is that the book will weigh rather heavy in your suitcase!
Another first-class product from Quality Chess. Serious players who play or face the Sicilian will find a great deal of useful information here, well organised and well explained. *****"
