Open from Monday to Saturday. Welcome to our newly designed online shop! Do you have any questions, comments or suggestions? Please feel free to sent us an email to info schachversand. The former web interface is still available. View item in former shop. Chess Explained is a new series of books about chess openings. They are not theoretical works in the traditional sense, but more a series of lessons from a chess expert with extensive over-the-board experience with an opening.

You will gain an understanding of the opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have.

Black develops his pieces more quickly than in many Sicilian Systems, and intricate piece-play often results. White’s most popular and critical response is the Richter-Rauzer Attack, and recent years have seen a diversification in the plans for both sides in this perennially popular line. Against White’s alternatives to the Rauzer, Yermolinsky covers lines that retain the independent significance of the Classical move-order, such as 6 Bc4 Qb6 – a line in which he is a leading specialist.

Grandmaster Alex Yermolinsky is one of the strongest players in the United States. His credentials as a teacher are no less impressive.

He assisted Irina Levitina in her bid for the Women’s World Championship inwhile his former pupils include several top-class grandmasters and a US Junior Champion.

Introduction An Opening Book?

Alex Yermolinsky — Wikipédia

Honestly I never thought I’d write an opening book. The idea of collecting a large amount of material and dumping it on the poor reader somehow never appealed to me.

As a practical player I never found much use for this coassical of opening manual even before the computer era. Nowadays, when every tournament player travels with his laptop, thereby having instant access to a couple of million games, presenting a mass of variations in book form makes even less sense to me.

As much as the authors of opening monographs proclaim their devotion to explaining ideas, the reality is often just as I described – there’s too much data and not enough verbiage. The necessity to cover a lot of ground can frustrate the best intentions of the authors. Indeed, the theory grows so fast that by the time the book is finished it needs twice as much space as yermolinsyk originally planned. Whatever claseical room is given to words, usually they come out as boring platitudes, such as “White’s better pawn-structure guarantees him a stable advantage” or “Black has sufficient counterplay for the pawn”.


There’s nothing wrong with these things per se, and I’ll be using them in this book as much as the next guy. The problem is that such evaluations are often influenced by the result of the game, and name recognition Anand played it with White, so it must be right.

When I was approached by Gambit with an idea of writing an opening book I was quite sceptical, until I realized it was going to be different.

The format chosen by Gambit for its opening book series ‘Chess Explained’ provides for a deeper and more personalized coverage of opening ideas.

Rather than putting the emphasis on supposedly ‘best’ moves, the actual games come first, allowing the reader to follow through to the end without siciliian distracted by the newest theoretical verdicts that might soon become obsolete.

Real explanation rather than heavy theory – I was sold on that. But what opening to yermopinsky

Alex Yermolinsky

The Classical Sicilian I decided to play safe and go for the Classical Sicilian, an opening I have been playing as Black for almost three decades. I was asked to choose twenty-five modern grandmaster games, which should be enough to cover the spectrum of ideas of any opening, even one as well-researched as the Classical Sicilian.

Here I was tempted. Having played many different subvariations and having met with a variety of White’s responses to them I could have probably based this book on my experiences alone. However, it wouldn’t be fair to the reader, because the majority of the games wouldn’t be recent and it would skew the book toward my personal taste. Instead, I had to plunge into the databases to fish out appropriate examples.

Since this still happens to be an opening book, my choice went for shorter games or at least ones that were basically decided before the endgame was reached. The insufficient representation of the endgame may shift the statistics in White’s favour and might be viewed as a shortcoming of this work. Every game is illustrated by about nine diagrams, some of which follow the game, and some follow the notes.

In most cases the variations given do not stray from a diagram for more than five or six moves. I hope siciliann will make it possible for the more experienced reader to enjoy this book without the assistance of a chessboard and pieces.

Since this isn’t an opening monograph in the conventional sense, I have broken the cardinal rule of citing every source at the end of each variation. As the result, some of you may find your moves given without attribution.

For this I apologize. Siciljan a word for those who expect an immediate return on their investment and prefer siciian play and study what is currently being played by the classiacl elite. Some ten to fifteen years ago the Classical Sicilian dlassical more important than it does now.


Indeed, some of the best players such as Kramnik have defected to the safety of the Petroff and Berlin Wall, but who knows what the future may bring? I hope this book will serve not as a requiem, but become an inspiration to future generations of Classical Sicilian aficionados. Medium Book Weight g Width Inhalte und Gliederung Das Buch behandelt das klassische Sizilianisch nach 1.

Das klassische Sizilianisch ist ein beliebtes System der sizilianischen Verteidigung, Es wird u. Le2 oder das in letzter Zeit in Mode gekommene 6. Le2, das Boleslawski-System [B]; 2.

A chess expert, in this case the phenomenal Siciian Yermolinsky, will help you to develop an yermolinsiy of the Classical Sicilian which runs after the moves 1. Nc3 Nc6, an opening which Yermolinsky is playing with success for years. In this book I found 25 extensively analysed games where one game is good for around four pages of text included with around nine diagrams where some diagrams follow the game, and other the notes to it.

So it is for the more experienced reader not difficult to yerrmolinsky the game without the help of a chess board and pieces. Some way these game annotations remind me of the extensive game analyses from Timman so well are they explained by Yermolinsky. The material in this book is divided in to the following sections: Interesting to mention is that Yermolinsky analyses of his pet line with 6. Bc4 Qb6 where he is a leading specialist is, for this only I would buy this interesting written siciliann book!

But there is more, for example the Richter-Rauzer with some early deviations as: It is difficult to stop for me but one more line that I must mention is the modern treatment of the Rauzer 1. Bxf6 gxf6, after Yermolinsky the Kozul suicide variation, where Yermolinsky is responsible for keeping the torch burning. A must openings book! With kind permission of the author John Elburg www.
