In the intro to chapter 14 (the Anti-Sveshnikov), at page 171, the author writes after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3. "Now, after 3...Nf6, 4.Bb5!? is unpleasant for Black, and Black also has plenty of problems after 4.d4 cxd4 5.Nxd4 e5 6.Nbd5". Well, isn't this the... Sveshnikov Sicilian??  Shocked

I am puzzled.  Undecided


AFAIK Sveshnikov has changed his mind in recent years and switched to the Kalashnikov, which he now believes is stronger than "his" Sveshnikov.

I read somewhere that Sveshnikov vs. the Anti-Sicilians is part of a repertoire series, with separate volumes on the Rossolimo and the Kalashnikov forthcoming.

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 some way related to the book, it's a blunder.)
