The Carlsen Variation? In 2018, World Champion Magnus Carlsen unveiled a new Anti-Sicilian to beat Polish top grandmaster Radoslaw Wojtasczek: 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Qxd4 Nc6 5.Qd2 followed by b2-b3 and Bb2. Since then the opening has gained a considerable following, but the system is still relatively rare and this book is the first that is dedicated to this surprising system.

The foreword is written by the creative and entertaining Simon Williams, the Ginger GM, who himself is famous for his sharp play and original opening play.
