Webinar 94. Black Repertoire: How to Play Kan Sicilian for a Win?


Dear Chess Friends!

What is your playing style? Do you prefer to play positionally or you are more a tactical player? Or just a player with a well-developed ability to calculate and visualize? As for me, I’m more a tactical player with good calculation skills. However, my weak side is misunderstanding of unfamiliar positions.

Why do I ask such a question? Your opening repertoire should reflect your playing style. For example, if you are a good positional player who tries to avoid tactics, you’d better choose closed or semi-closed positions with long plans. Philidor Defense, Giuoco Piano or Caro-Kann Defense are good choices in such a case.

However, if you are a tactical player, you’d better play sharp and open (or semi-open positions). And the best choice in such a case is Sicilian Defense (maybe French Defense as well). You know that Sicilian Defense contains a lot of variations. Which one to choose?

Actually, it’s up to you – the one you feel most comfortable. I chose Kan Sicilian and I would like to share my knowledge of this variation on our next webinar 94th “Black Repertoire: How to Play Kan Sicilian for a Win?” and I’m happy to invite you there.

Just to clarify what Kan Sicilian is: 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 a6

I’m going to explain the main concept of this opening, show typical plans for black and which plans expect from white. And, of course, I’ll demonstrate the most common lines so that you may start applying this opening in your games.

Join the webinar, learn a new opening and defeat white!

The webinar starts on Sunday (12th of September) at 10 a.m. (EDT), 2 p.m. (GMT), 5 p.m. (Moscow time). This webinar is free.
