En oppdatert utgave og første gang på engelsk av den utmerkede boka om Siciliansk-varianten 1 e4 c5 2 Sf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Sxd4 Lc5!? som straks bringer spillet ut av fra de kjente hovedveiene, og heller ikke virker så ekstremt risikabelt å spille.

Den utsolgte tyske boka fra 2004 het(er) Sizilianisch für Müssiggänger.

IM Valeri Bronznik skriver om den sjeldne åpningsvarianten der svart etter de vanlige trekkene 1 e4 c5 2 Sf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Sxd4 ikke velger 4...Sc6 (Paulsen) eller 4...a6 (Kan), men altså 4...Lc5 som forøvrig også opprinnelig ble spilt på 1800-tallet av den geniale mesteren Louis Paulsen. Varianten ble tatt opp igjen på 1970-tallet av originalen Michael Basman og siden igjen fra 1992 av den kroatiske IM'en Srdjan Sale. Vi ser også spillere som Popovic, Dizdar, Plaskett og Nijboer med de svarte brikkene i en variant som langt de fleste vil oppleve som et overraskelsesvåpen.

Forlagets omtale:

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.

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. That is why The Lazy Man’s Sicilian is ideal for club players who don’t have much time to study opening theory (or are not too fond of hard work anyway).

This easily accessible and up-to-date book offers everything you need to get started with the Basman-Sale Variation. In well-organized chapters it describes the history and underlying ideas of the variation and explains the pawn structures, the strategies and the tactical themes. What’s more, if you play the Basman-Sale system, there is plenty of room for your own creativity as well!
