In the Grandmaster Repertoire – 1.e4 series, Indian superstar Parimarjan Negi presents his own world-class repertoire.
In this third volume of the series (the second -of 3 volumes- on the Sicilian) Negi tackles many challenging Sicilian lines – the Dragons, Rauzer, Sveshnikov and Kalashnikov.
Building on a foundation of critical main lines, Negi reveals an arsenal of new ideas, making this an essential addition to the library of every ambitious player.
Parimarjan Negi is a former child prodigy who is the second-youngest player of all time to obtain the Grandmaster title. He was Asian Champion in 2012, and played on Board 1 for the Indian team which won bronze medals at the Tromsø 2014 Olympiad.
Reviews of the previous volumes:
GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess:
“It’s so good! It shows everything that you need to produce world-class preparation... Negi’s book is absolutely stunning. My jaw kept dropping at the attacking ideas that Negi exposes in this book.”
GM David Smerdon:
“Every now and then, every once-in-a-FIDE-cycle, a book comes along that seriously impresses me. And recently, I received another of these rare, pleasant shocks. Indian GM Parimarjan Negi’s first book of his 1.e4 repertoire series is a real stand-out, an excellent piece of chess authorship.”
