Autor: Shaw, John
Verlag: Quality Chess
In this, the last of three volumes on 1.e4, GM John Shaw completes his state-of-the-art White repertoire by tackling the biggest challenge of all: the main lines of the Sicilian Defence. Just like the other two books in the series, this book is based upon a foundation of tried and tested main lines, boosted by a number of innovative suggestions that will cause no end of trouble to your opponents.
Including the Dragon, Taimanov, Sveshnikov and concluding with the nefarious Najdorf, this book provides everything you need to face all the major Sicilian systems with confidence.
John Shaw is a grandmaster and three-time Scottish Champion.
"With John Shaw in charge, the English language is pinpoint accurate, and when he adds in his dry Scottish humour you are sure to be won over with his prose. He often seems to be pointing out small, but relevant details, that others don't take the time to notice, such as who played what and how many times and when, which signifies that... and so on. A sign that his research has been multi-dimensional."
GM Glenn Flear, New in Chess Yearbook
"I am highly recommending this series - I had used so many of these lines and have gotten good positions in virtually all the time where I have tested the theory coverage from these books. Shaw's writing style is fun to read, with flecks of dry humour littered throughout the book... these books have attained 'must-have' status for all 1.e4 players."
IM Kevin Goh
"The book contains a good mix of variations, game fragments and complete model games, and brings some new ideas into circulation.
Overall, I can warmly recommend the book to all players with a penchant for dynamic positional play, who like to play for a win from solid positions."
IM Dirk Schuh
