The Basman-Sale 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.

Wer möchte das nicht ? Dieses Buch könnte schon alleine deswegen ein Bestseller werden.  Das Werk ist eine überarbeitete Ausgabe des Kania-Titels "Sizilianisch für Müßiggänger".   

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. 

An ideal chess book for chess-playing managers who don’t have much time to study opening theory.

CHESS Magazine (UK): "The variation retains surprise effect and remains playable to this day, with this work explaining both the theory and the key ideas behind Black's approach." IM Dirk Schuh, Rochade Europa: "A very good book which offers a relatively simple Sicilian system." IM Srdjan Sale, Yearbook 117: "The funnily-named Basman-Sale variation is prospering. It has lost its place among rare variations in which Black scores 50 per cent, but the variation is alive and kicking. When I wrote my first Survey in Yearbook 73 (2004), there were 424 games in MegaBase 2004, with Black scoring a respectable 50 per cent. Today, MegaBase 2015 has 1581 games and Black’s score is 46 per cent."
