Play the Sicilian Kan
A Dynamic and Flexible Repertoire for Black
By (author) Johan Hellsten
Play the Sicilian Kan by Johan Hellsten
Book DescriptionThe Kan is an ideal choice as an opening weapon against 1 e4, as it is one of the easiest variations of the Sicilian to learn and play. This is because, unlike some variations of the Sicilian, you don't need to memorize loads of opening theory in order to be successful. The Kan is relatively theory free in the traditional sense, and success is more likely to occur through the understanding of development systems and a deep study of the tactical and positional ideas for both sides. In this book Johan Hellsten draws upon his vast experience in the Sicilian Kan, revealing his secrets and showing how Black can adopt this opening and play it with confidence. He provides the reader with a dependable repertoire, demonstrating what to do in the main lines as well as how to deal with White's tricky alternatives. It features: detailed coverage of an easy-to-play Sicilian; includes answers to all of White's main options; and is written by a renowned Kan expert.
