  • Review: The Sicilian Najdorf 6 Bg5

    If you were to ask a hundred grandmasters to name the most difficult chess variation about which to write an opening book, my guess is that the 6 Bg5 Najdorf would be the frontrunner. It is perhaps the most analysed line in chess history, the pi&e... | Read More

  • The Paulsen Sicilian: A History

    The Open Sicilian can be broken down into four basic systems. In one, the Dragon, the black bishop is fianchettoed on g7. In the Scheveningen, it is developed on e7 while Black adopts a "little center" of pawns on d6 and e6. In a third, t... | Read More

      A couple of games - one I lost to stronger opponent, one I won against a marginally weaker one. I had white in both. I am on course to marginally improve my grade to 93ish in the January ratings.  This might be a long road. Kind of felt I last... | Read More

    • Killing Sicilian Sveshnikov

      In this game I played against new move for me. I tried to understand position and did it well. Black didn't make mandatory move f5 and I won opening battle. Black's rook's maneuver was too slow and Bd7?? in middlegame. I finished game by nice comb... | Read More

    The Sicilian Defense: What Happens after the immediate 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 e5?! This is a quite dubious move, trying to steal tempo from white. However, white can "takeback" the tempo by 6. Bb5+! Bd7 7. Bxd7+ Qxd7 whe... Read More »
