Closed Sicilian B23-26

476 Instructive Chess Positions

Authored by Bill Harvey

Here is a collection of 476 puzzles taken from the first 20 moves of Closed Sicilian chess miniatures of tournament, correspondence and internet games. Each puzzle represents a tactic or stratagem nearly unique to this opening. A diagram marks the point of the critical position in the game. The remainder of the game along with variant solutions is found at the end of the book. The Closed Sicilian is a robust opening with 40 per cent of these puzzles containing a sacrifice (including about a dozen with double sacrifices). There are 130 mates puzzles as well. This is a collection sure to surprise even the sage veteran of the opening.
