MASTERING THE
SICTLN
The Sicilian Defence, famed for its exciting counterattacking potential, has long enioyed great popularity at
all levels of play - from club amateur to world champion.
In this instructive book, part of the acclaimed Batsford
'Mastering the Openings' series, International Master Dr
Danny Kopec explains the Sicilian from Black's point of
view in terms of pawn structures, tactical themes and
plans, rather than dense analysis of specific lines of play
By going through the mastery lessons, step by step, the
reader will gain true understanding of the ideas behind
the main variations of the Sicilian and the .oniid.n.. ,o
progress thereafter to a study of more advanced theory.
Dr Danny Kopec has pursued an academic career as
Professor of Computer Science with concentration in
Artificial Intelligence and Software Methodology For
more than 15 years Kopec has been testing and evaluating
hundreds of chess players in the UK, Canada, and the US
in order to quantify their overall
chess strength, their
specific deficiencies and definite abilities. In bridging his
chess and academic interests, Kopec has developed a
reputation as perhaps the world's greatest exponent of
chess knowledge.
