For players who lack either the time or inclination to study reams of opening theory the Closed Sicilian (1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 followed by 3.g3) is an excellent choice. The two great exponents of this method of play were World Champions Vassily Smyslov and Boris Spassky. These days it's the top English Grandmasters Michael Adams and Nigel Short who are its leading exponents.
During the early stages White quietly builds strong central fortifications and gains space on the kingside. Despite the quiet appearance of this plan, in the middle game this can lead to a ferocious onslaught against Black's king. On this DVD Nigel Davies introduces the viewer to the different strategies and variations through a series of instructive games. His presentation caters mainly for players who wish to play White, but he also points out the best methods of defence for Black. This makes it essential viewing for players wishing to play either colour.
Video running time: 4.5 hours
Nigel Davies has been an International Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Quickplay and U21 Champion. He has had considerable experience in both the Scotch and in teaching club level players.

„Seine" Eröffist langsam, das geschlossene System im Sizilianer. Dort braucht es weniger konVarianten zur Instandhaltung, hier ist das Ineinandergreifen von Figurenmanövern relevant. Wassili Smyslow, Boris Spasski, Lajos Portisch und Anatoli Karpow sind die Helden, die in den 60er und 70er Jahren Moschufen, und heute sind Michael Adams und Nigel Short Trendsetter. Diese DVD ist für Neulinge dieser Spielweise gedenn die 19 Beispiele drehen sich um die entstehenden Zugfolgen im fünften und sechsten Zug. Es geht um die Grundlagen, aber auch um neuere Entwicklungen, wobei 2. Sc3 zurückgestellt oder gar nicht gespielt wird (u. a. 2. Sa3, 2. d3 oder 2. g3). Wem der große Besitzstand der scharfen Sizilianer zu viel ist, der sollte diese Schatztruhe öffnen.
