New: Dorian Rogozenco: Play the Sveshnikov Sicilian - A complete repertoire for Black against the open Sicilian
“In order to understand an opening, you need to know the historical background and have a good feeling for the dynamics”, says the GM Dorian Rogozenco in the introduction to this video course. Based on 30 years of personal experience at high level, Rogozenco provides a complete guide for Black in the modern theory of the Sveshnikov Sicilian. The Sveshnikov Sicilian regained popularity after the World Championship match 2018 between Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana, where the World Champion used the opening as one of his main weapons.

About Dorian Rogozenco
Born 1973 in Moldavia, is today a citizen of Romania. Rogozenco is a strong chess player, who, e.g., qualified for the 2001 FIDE-WCh 2001, but who at a relatively young age began to favour his activities as an author. Rogozenco is one of the most successful ChessBase authors. In 2000 there was his CD “Sveshnikov System”; then came “The Slav”, “The Dragon 1 and 2” and “The Alapin Sicilian”. This is in fact a list of his specialist fields in which he keeps on producing highly interesting contributions. His books too: “Anti-Sicilians – a guide for Black” and “The Sveshnikov Reloaded” have received high praise in the chess press. Rogozenco lives in Hamburg.
