The Sveshnikov is undeniably one of the most dynamic and aggressive Sicilians available these days.

Most recently, it was made popular again by World Champion Magnus Carlsen in his match against Fabiano Caruana at the end of 2018.

The main lines lead to complex positions, and a deep knowledge and understanding of the opening is a real necessity for any player who wishes to enter this battlefield.

Our author, Robert Ris, focuses on all the current developments, highlighting the most important and instructive games from recent years, using his own over-the board experiences.

Ris is well known for his theoretical knowledge and overall opening expertise. And we are quite convinced that he provides Sicilian players with an up-to date arsenal for playing the Sveshnikov.


I have decided to split the book into six parts and would like to elucidate my choices:

1) Dynamic Line 9.Bxf6 gxf6 10.Nd5 f5 11.Bd3 Be6

When I started learning the Sveshnikov, 9.Bxf6 was considered to be posing Black some serious challenges. After 9.Bxf6 gxf6 10.Nd5 I had a hard time deciding whether to recommend the Main Line with 10…f5 or Novosibirsk Variation arising from 10…Bg7 11.Bd3 Ne7. The latter option currently enjoys some popularity as it was played amongst others by Magnus Carlsen in 2019, but 10…f5 has proven itself still to be a very reliable continuation for Black. Hence, I didn’t feel the need to change my original choice. I hope you will enjoy the complicated middlegame battle as much as I do!
