The Sicilian Bb5 is the most popular and successful anti-Sicilian variation. It attracted world attention when it was used by Vassily Ivanchuk to score a stunning win against Garry Kasparov at Linares in 1991, after which its reputation grew as the perfect way to avoid mainline Sicilian theory without compromising White's attacking ideals. As such it has proved a deadly weapon in the hands of Adams and Grischuk- and even Kasparov himself.

This book is the latest in the innovative 'Revealed' series, in which the key ideas of chess openings are explained in an entertaining and accessible way, using fresh, clear presentation - ideal for improving players.

  • 'First Moves' leads you through the basic opening moves

  • 'Heroes & Zeroes' gives the best and worst performances with the Sicilian Bb5 and features some of its leading exponents

  • 'Tricks & Traps' reveals how you can catch out your opponent

  • 'What's Hot' pinpoints the latest ideas from the world's elite Tests to assess your newfound skills in handling Bb5 structures
