The Kalashnikov is a favourite weapon of mine in the main line of the Sicilian Defense. It is closely related to the Sveshnikov but with much less theory to learn. This increasingly popular opening is easy to pick up as the Black pieces can usuallybe developed quickly and smoothly. When I was looking for a Sicilian variation to play, this one ticked all of the boxes. Many of the ideas are thematic and Black can achieve attacking positions in several of the variations. The lines have all beenthoroughly checked and will hopefully provide the viewer with the confidence to play this opening.
The starting position for this video series is 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 e5. A full Black repertoire is provided from this point. There are several interactive questions to test the viewers’ knowledge of the material.
