This week the Internet Chess Club (ICC) is showcasing a new series named Upholding the Sicilian, by IM Mark Ginsburg. The Sicilian Defense is by far Black's most popular answer to 1 e4 at all levels of chess - but many White players prefer to avoid the main lines by playing one of the multitude of so-called ‘Anti-Sicilian' lines on offer. These alternatives to 2 Nf3 include the primitive but dangerous Grand Prix Attack, one or two wild gambits, and also some tedious and niggling variations such as the Alapin with 2. c3, the Closed Sicilian, the Moscow/Rossolimo with 3. Bb5(+) and the KIA which are all designed to stamp out any fun Black was envisaging when playing 1...c5.

But fear not, because there's an antidote to it all: Upholding the Sicilian by IM Mark Ginsburg, who in a new 8 video series brought to you by the Internet Chess Club, provides a reliable repertoire to all those annoying sidelines.

The series includes:

Closed Sicilian Smith-Morra Gambit Alapin 2. c3 Moscow/Rossilino 3. Bb5(+) Grand Prix Attack KIA Irregular Non Gambits 1. e4 c5 2. b3; 1. e4 c5 2. nf3 e6 3. b3 Irregular Gambit - Wing Gambit 1. e4 c5 2. b4; 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. b4
