The f4 SicilianWe have received a brand new DVD from Hamburg: The f4 Sicilian.

The Grand Prix Attack was popularized by Bent Larsen back in the sixties and today it is still the favourite Sicilian of countless club players.

GM Emil Sutovsky has recently proven the strength's of this line and created chaos on the board against some of the world's top players.

White's strategy is simple but effective; the advance of the e- and f-pawns gains space on the kingside and those pawns can be used as a battering ram later on, with the White pieces ready to attack.

This DVD takes a good look at the move 2.Nc3 because of the gambit line with 2...d5! 3.exd5 Nf6. It shows that in this variation Black can't afford any inaccuracies.

Author and presenter Nigel Davies has played this system with both colours. Please have a look at this 4 hours of lesson for club players.
