The variant 1.e4 c5; 2.b3 is very interesting to fight the very popular Sicilian defense. In your chess career, how often have you changed your repertoire to avoid confrontation of the Sicilian defense? Frequently my students and readers say: "I do not know how to play against the Sicilian defense!" With 2.b3 against the Sicilian you will find a variant easy to understand. This system has been played occasionally by some very strong Grand Masters, such as Magnus Carlsen, Nigel Short, Boris Spassky, Vladimir Kramnik, Levon Aronian and Alexander Morozevich. Also it has been the main anti-Sicilian weapon of such strong players GM Tamaz Gelashvili, IM Moshe Czerniak, and IM/WGM Eva Repkova. I hope you enjoy the book and obtain many successes with 2.b3 against the Sicilian.
