Sicilian Kan - Emms



Sicilian Kan - John Emms

The Sicilian Kan is one of the most flexible and easy-to-play variations of the entire Sicilian complex. In contrast to opening monsters such as the infamous Dragon and Najdorf Variations, Black players are not forced to memorise massive chunks of opening knowledge. Success in the Kan is more dependent on understanding certain principles and a system of development. A further point in its favour is that even more experienced white players are often flummoxed by Blacks elastic approach. Recently the Kan has received a seal of approval, with both Kasparov and Kramnik employing it.

In this book, Grandmaster John Emms considers both the popular main lines and the tricky sidelines of the Sicilian Kan. Using illustrative games, Emms guides the reader through the positional and tactical intricacies of this modern opening.
