Forlagets egen omtale:

The O’Kelly variation of the Sicilian Defence (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 a6) is a wonderful system for those who enjoy playing Sicilian positions but don’t want to get bogged down in heavy theory. The O’Kelly relies far more on an understanding of general strategic ideas and middlegame planning than on rote memorisation of opening moves. One of the benefits of the O’Kelly is that White’s natural continuation of 3 d4, although very frequently played, permits Black confortable development and an easy game.

In Play the O’Kelly Sicilian, highly experienced chess author and coach Andrew Martin guides the reader through the complexities of the O’Kelly and carves out a repertoire for Black. He examines all aspects of this fascinating opening and provides the reader with well-researched, fresh, and innovative analysis. Each annotated game has valuable lessons on how to play the opening and contains instructive commentary on typical middlegame plans.

Andrew Martin skriver selv:

Most 1 e4 specialists have ready-made solutions to the Najdorf, Dragon, Sveshnikov and other main lines, but against the O’Kelly I get the impression that players of all levels are not so well prepared. The general view is that White is just a bit better after any of 3 Ìc3, 3 c3 and 3 c4, and the chess world seems to have been content to leave it at that. I have found that matters are not so simple. If White is caught unprepared then he has his work cut out and even if he is fully prepared, Black has good solutions in all lines. Top grandmasters such as Artemiev have been using the O’Kelly with great success during the pandemic era, cashing in on a direct lack of knowledge. Let me illustrate.
