Variation is a relatively unexplored weapon for Black in the very
popular Sicilian Defence. Its advantages are clear: it is surprising,
aggressive and easy to learn.
After the perfectly normal moves
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Black lashes out with 4…Bc5! English
IM Michael Basman and Croatian IM Srdjan Sale were the pioneers of this
cunning opening system.
Compared to the complexity of mainstream
Sicilian variations it requires little theoretical preparation, while
you don’t run excessive risks. That is why The Lazy Man’s Sicilian is
ideal for club players who don’t have much time to study opening theory
(or are not too fond of hard work anyway).
accessible and up-to-date book offers everything you need to get started
with the Basman-Sale Variation. In well-organized chapters it describes
the history and underlying ideas of the variation and explains the pawn
structures, the strategies and the tactical themes. What’s more, if
you play the Basman-Sale system, there is plenty of room for your own
creativity as well!
