Just released: Fabien Libiszewski – Master the Kalashnikov Variation of the Sicilienne

by clement

Black willingly makes strategic concessions, but in return forces White to waste time developing. This versatile opening will appeal to players who enjoy dynamic play. In this course, you’ll learn the key ideas and crucial strategic plans that will enable you to feel at home in different lines.

The Kalashnikov was designed in 1834 by one of the greatest players of his time, Charles de La Bourdonnais. This opening has stood the test of time and is still used at the highest level by the best players. Modern heroes of this opening include Teimour Radjabov, Alexei Shirov and, more recently, Parham Maghsoodloo and Hikaru Nakamura, the latter using it in the decisive final round of the Grand Swiss 2023, which guaranteed his qualification for the Candidates Tournament.

To surprise your opponents, expand your repertoire with cutting-edge variations! Explore the modern perspective of this opening with French GM Fabien Libiszewski, a Kalashnikov expert for almost two decades.
