by IM Andrew Martin

 The Four Knights Sicilian (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Nc6) is a solid and dependable weapon for Black. The variation is not as widely known, making it easier for Black to obtain a good game with it. Theoretically it is easy to learn and IM Andrew Martin provides expert guidance through the theoretically important lines as well as the plans and ideas of this variation. The perfect choice for those who wish to try out the Sicilian!

Part 1 of this exclusive four-part series examines the main line 6.Ndb5 which is the most common White move. It is a critical test of the opening, but Andrew will show you how to successfully handle the position with Black.
