ALAPIN SICILIAN PDF

Anti Sicilians: Fighting the Alapin 2. This dynamic opening variation is played at every level, from club players to strong Grandmasters. Sveshnikov, Tiviakov, Rozentalis are among the group we can consider experts on the Alapin, but it has also been played by World Champions like Anand, Kasparov or Karpov. This is not the case for the Alapin, as it probably is the most respected anti Sicilian system and it offers white a solid position but with enough chances to play aggressive and create difficult problems for black to solve. In this article we will have a look into an interesting line arising after the main response 2…d5! Hundreds of chess players already benefited from our training.

Anti Sicilians: Fighting the Alapin 2. This dynamic opening variation is played at every level, from club players to strong Grandmasters. Sveshnikov, Tiviakov, Rozentalis are among the group we can consider experts on the Alapin, but it has also been played by World Champions like Anand, Kasparov or Karpov. This is not the case for the Alapin, as it probably is the most respected anti Sicilian system and it offers white a solid position but with enough chances to play aggressive and create difficult problems for black to solve.

In this article we will have a look into an interesting line arising after the main response 2…d5! Hundreds of chess players already benefited from our training. Another big line for black instead of 2…d5 is 2…Nf6, but we are leaving that for another occasion. The line we are going to examine here starts after the moves: 1. Nf3 Bg4 6. Be2 cxd4 7. In this line black is ready to part ways with his bishops in order to simplify the position and create hanging pawns that he can later attack.

Although this way of playing against the Alapin is not very popular, it has been employed more than once by top GM Ivan Cheparinov with good results. However, the real specialist on this variation is Grandmaster Vladimir Georgiev, who has many games in this system. His results are very good too. Pawn Structure This is the likely structure that arises from this opening. A rupture with c3-c4 followed by d4-d5 is often good for the white, who will use his bishops in an open position. It is worth noticing how white understood this, and immediately went on to trade one bishop for a knight in order to keep the balance.

This example shows the typical play that arises from the variation. However, from the theoretical point of view, black should avoid 10…Bh5 and favor 10…Bxf3 as played by Cheparinov. We explain why in the comments. This game is another good example of the middlegame struggle between knights versus bishops in which the pawn structure is the most relevant factor.

Black obtained equality right out of the opening and went on to win. Nowadays you must be armed against the most popular openings with either color. It is useful to know one or two systems against each one of them, so if you already have something against the Alapin you can add this weapon to your arsenal and avoid preparations from your opponents.

Good luck!

Alapin Sicilian

The opening moves are 1. The Alapin Sicilian has the advantage of allowing white to grab the center without having to trade a central pawn for a flank pawn. For example, after 2…Nc6?! The main downside of the Alapin is that the white knight is deprived of its natural post on c3 — something that black can exploit with active play. Alapin Sicilian — 2…Nf6 In this line, black immediately attacks the e4 pawn. It would be nice for white to defend the pawn with Nc3, but this of course is not possible!

Chess Opening Theory/1. e4/1...c5/2. c3

I am actually very good at this myself, because I play against a portable computer engine I have at home times a day, and I have done a lot of research on anti-computer play. Like you have mentioned, at this point in time turning off the opening book in chess engines would be a disadvantage, so I have learned a lot of rare variations in an attempt to get it out of the opening book. However, you have also said that you could probably beat a chess computer in the opening if its book was off, but this is not the reason I do this. I get out of the opening book to make the computer waste time thinking in the early opening, so that its play in the middle game is not as strong because it is out of time to think. This is the main reason that computers are weak with their opening books turned off: not because they play bad although they might but because they run out of time thinking. You should also note that anti-computer play is assuming regular chess engines, but I have never heard of an anti-computer player who played against AI engines. Mar FiveofSwords : A funny thing happened today to me in this line which is very relevant to the discussion.
