If one believes at all in nominative determinism, I would have supposed that someone with such an utterly splendid chess name would be more forthright, writing about some of the wilder main lines.

Wonder how this text may differ from the earlier one by Kasparov (S), 'Steamrolling the Sicilian'.

Opening Repertoire - Beating the Sicilian
by Jonas Hacker
Everyman ; 304 pages ; £19 $28 €25 (?)
September/October 2020

In this book, German FIDE master Jonas Hacker provides a complete repertoire for White when facing the Sicilian. The recommended systems are based on solid strategic considerations. The backbone of the repertoire is the line 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 f3!? This is a perfect line to throw Najdorf and Dragon players off their stride. White will (usually) follow up with c2-c4 and establish a useful space advantage. Many of the other recommended lines are also based around the space-gaining c2-c4 advance providing cohesion across the whole repertoire.
