Against most Sicilian variations, White's sharpest and often best weapon is queenside castling, a strategy that frequently leads to spectacular fireworks. Regrettably, these powerful charges have never been properly categorized. Until this book.

In Sicilian Attacks, Grandmaster Yuri Yakovieh, who has more than thirty years of experience with complex Sicilian systems, analyses the Najdorf, the Scheveningen, the Dragon, the Taimanov and the Richter-Rauzer Variations. He teaches how their pawn struc­tures dictate typical methods of attack for White, but he also gives the best defending techniques for Black.

This book provides cutting-edge analysis full of original ideas, but also contains useful verbal guidelines to help you to recognize typical Sicilian plans and counlerplans. An abundance of highly in­structive games illustrate the various strategic and tactical themes. At the end of each chapter you will find practical conclusions.
