In Dangerous Weapons: Anti-Sicilians, prominent opening specialists John Emms, Richard Palliser and Peter Wells take a revolutionary look at a popular group of openings - the Anti-Sicilians.
But instead of travelling down well-trodden and analysed paths, the authors concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations, selecting a wealth of 'dangerous' options for both colours.
Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded; they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponent off balance.
Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you confident and fully-armed, and your opponents running for cover!
• Anti-Sicilians in a whole new light • Packed with original ideas and analysis • Ideal for ambitious and adventurous players.
Dangerous Weapons is a series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire.
John Emms:"Anti-Sicilian systems continue to be a source of comfort for White players who want to avoid the ever-growing theory of the main lines, and conversely a pain in the neck for those playing Black whose only real wish is to reach the Najdorf, Dragon, Scheveningen or Sveshnikov (..) in every single game they play.
