This book is a further addition to Everyman's best-selling Starting Out series, which has been acclaimed for its original approach to tackling chess openings.


John Cox revisits the fundamentals of the Sveshnikov, elaborating on the crucial early moves and ideas for both sides in a way that is often neglected in other texts. The reader is helped throughout with a plethora of notes, tips and warnings highlighting the vital characteristics of the Sicilian Sveshnikov and of opening play in general. Starting Out: Sicilian Sveshnikov is a perfect guide for improving players and those new to this opening.


No opening in recent times has captured the imagination of the chess public more than the Sicilian Sveshnikov. Initially popularized in the 1970s, the Sveshnikov has exploded onto the chess scene at the highest levels and is now regarded by many experts as one of Black's most promising answers to 1 e4.


One of its major attractions is that more often than not the opening leads to incredibly sharp and complex play. In such situations both sides must play with extreme accuracy just to stay on the board as a single slip may lead to disaster! This uncompromising and modern approach with the black pieces has found favour with many of today's leading Grandmasters, including Vladimir Kramnik and Peter Leko, while Garry Kasparov also began playing it towards the end of his career.

Über das Buch:

John Cox hat mit "Sicilian Sveshnikov" ein hervorragendes Buch über eine der schärfsten und erfolgreichsten Eröffnungen gegen 1.e4 geschrieben. Zum Einstieg in diese Eröffnung kann ich dieses Buch jedem Schachfreund empfehlen, auch langjährige Sveshnikov-Spieler werden viel Neues darin entdecken! Insgesamt sehr positiv. —Rochade Europa

In reading this book, I was amazed at how well Cox communicates the basic truths and essential elements of these, at times, ridiculously complicated lines. Each line is covered in enough detail to sufficiently help you understand what is going on, without losing track of the broader picture. Furthermore, Cox takes care to anticipate any questions about why certain moves might be played. It's as if he remembers what it was like to be an improving player who is trying to fathom a new opening. He is also very diligent at pointing out interesting ideas in overlooked or underrated sidelines that are well worth exploring in your own games. This is a very good book and as an introduction to this exciting variation or as a companion to other theoretical works it will serve you well. Go get it! —Carsten Hansen ChessCafe

The 2007 work Starting Out: Sicilian Sveshnikov by John Cox is a bit advanced for a Starting Out book, but Cox is an excellent writer and covers all of the positional bases and less important ideas as he goes along. It's a book for both Black and White (not a repertoire), and doesn't concern itself with moves like 3 Bb5 and 3 c3. But Cox does spend time on the popular move order 2 Nf3 (and 2 Nc3 Nc6 3 Ne2) 2...Nc6 3 Nc3 e5. —John Watson TWIC
