Alexei Bezgodov
Challenging the Sicilian with 2.a3!?

208 pages, Chess Stars Publishing

code: K-477 price: 19,9€

This book is devoted to the enterprising and quite original and unexplored possibility for White - 1.e4 c5 2.a3!?

Strong practical players who do not have time or desire to go into long theoretical Sicilian battles can try to enrich their opening repertoire with this remarkable system.

It cannot be refuted by any encyclopedia or database. In fact the author of the book has practically invented a new and quite interesting opening.

His suprising ideas and thorough analyses require considerable precision from Black.

It is a remarkable phenomenon that such rare lines based on solid positional basis often yield much better practical results than the well tested routine main lines.

Rare and original variations are just super effective in blitz too. You might remember that Bobby Fischer used to say that the opening theory was developing so extensively that it was worth considering thinking about starting the game from a random position.

Most of the strongest contemporary players share the opinion that White has practically no serious advantage in any popular opening and the essence of the opening fight is to detect and to exploit the weak points of your opponent's preparation.

This book will enrich you with plenty of new ideas and will eventually help you win a lot of beautiful victories. You can really hope to become a much better player having read it.
