It is a voluminous book which offers the reader the results of S.Soloviov’s ten years of research. The author analyzes a rare, but with extraordinary interest, line of chess theory. 1.e4 c5 2.a3.
This is a continuation which has not been used by most of the chess world. It is essentially a more flexible version of the gambit in the Sicilian defense with 2.b4. In several cases similar or even identical positions and patterns arise . This can be seen when one of the most possible continuations is 2…Nc6 3.b4! cxb4 4.axb4 Nxb4 5.d4 d5 6.c3 Nc6 7.exd5 Qxd5 8.Na3!
A very good option for surprise but not only. If your opponent is not familiar with this position he will lose it quite quickly! The game can often be over even in 10 moves.
An interesting option for dealing with the Sicilian defence which, apart from the element of surprise, will provide you with important strategic and tactical knowledge.
