New: A Black Repertoire versus the Anti-Sicilians - Nicholas Pert

1/13/2021 – The Sicilian is the most popular opening against 1.e4 because it is theoretically sound but offers Black double-edged play at the same time. Whilst you must know how to handle the main line (2. Nf3 and 3.d4), sidelines are also very important. In this video series, Nicholas Pert gives a strong and practical Black repertoire against these sidelines such as the Bb5 Sicilian, the Grand Prix Attack, the Alapin and many more, from his years of experience playing the Sicilian.

A Black Repertoire versus the Anti-Sicilians

The repertoire is designed for players who play 2...Nc6 against the main line Sicilian. This video series is the perfect complement to my Kalashnikov video series in order to give Black a complete repertoire against 1...e4, but it will also complement other Sicilian lines. For example if you play the Sveshnikov Sicilian (Magnus Carlsen’s recent choice), Accelerated Dragon, Grivas Sicilian, Taimanov Variation, Flohr Variation or Loewenthal Variation against the main line Sicilian, then this video series can be used to cover all of the important sidelines that White might play. There are also many useful chapters for players who play other Sicilian variations (not involving an early Nc6). I find that sidelines are more common than the main line at club level, and possibly at top level too, so having a strong repertoire against these sidelines is essential for any Sicilian player.

A Sicilian Stunner - The Kalashnikov

This increasingly popular opening is easy to pick up as the Black pieces can usually be developed quickly and smoothly. Many of the ideas are thematic and Black can achieve attacking positions in several of the variations.

The Shining Sveshnikov Sicilian

Always wanted to play like a World Champion? Search no further! With Magnus Carlsen using the Sveshnikov variation as his weapon of choice in the World Championship match against Fabiano Caruana, this DVD could not be better timed.
