Sneaking Into the g3 Sicilian With 2.Nc3 & 3.Nge2
I like the idea of being able to play g3 against all the Sicilian variations but against the Kaslashnikov and the Sveshnikov Black can play this ...e5 move and change the nature of the game. So I figu...

Sam Collins' bias towards White
For quite some time now I have been having the feeling that Sam Collins, in his updates for the Anti-Sicilian section, has a rather strong – and hence, in my view, unjustified – bias towards White. Hi...

Sveshnikov vs. the Anti-Sicilians
At page 8 we see a diagram... and it's the position after 1.e4... c6 (!), instead of the Sicilian. I think it's an unforgivable printing blunder. (No, it's not a short section on the Caro-Kann, in som...

Non-delayed wing gambit?
What is the point of playing 2.b4 rather than 2.Nf3 and 3.b4? 2.b4 allows this d5 stuff. The only thing that I can think of that 2.b4 avoids is 2...g6. Is there something else?
