This was the first book published on the line of play in the Sicilian 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 exd4 4 Nxd4 e5!? 5 Nb5 d6, which the author has appropriately labeled the Neo-Sveshnikov. Black's 6th move has only been employed as part of a system in the last seven years. International Master Jeremy Silman played the line in major tournaments for over a year before beginning this analysis. He developed an understanding and feel for the system which permits him to relate the underlying concepts to the reader. Silman has provided an in-depth study of the variation and includes some by-play to aid readers in lines branching from the main theme.

When I first saw the variation that comes about after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 e5 5.Nb5 d6 I was intrigued but skeptical. Such lines don't usually last in the top levels of chess so I suspected it would fade rather quickly. However the variation refused to die! Not only did it have a small but faithful following but even world class players such as Short, Van der Wiel and Sveshnikov took it up. I decided that I should take a look at the analysis and perhaps give it a try myself.

At this point a problem reared its ugly head: There were no articles or books on this subject! Well, if I wanted to study it I was was forced to do some work and put together some information.

Now, after having played this opening for over a year, I feel compelled to offer up the first book ever written on this subject.

Having dispensed with that, we now come to a funny dilemma: What to call this variation? Van der Wiel called the line after 5.Nb5 d6 the Kalashnikov. On the other hand, the line with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 e5 is usually called the La Bourdonnais Variation since it was extensively used by La Bourdonnais (France) way back in 1835. After Las Bourdonnais both Louis Paulsen (Germany) and Howard Staunton (England) took up the line and won nice games with it. Next was Mir Sultan Khan (India) who tried it in 1930, winning all four games in which it was played. Though nobody played the critical 5.Nb5! in the 1800s the line never found a great deal of support, even though Black usually did very well in the opening. In the 1900s 5.Nb5 was only played once versus Sultan Khan and when Kuzminikh of the USSR took up the variation most players still shied away from 5.Nb5. It is interesting to note that both these players answered 5.Nb5 with ...d6, even though 5...a6 was thought to be the main line (inferior as it was).

So, with this history behind us, do we call it the La Bourdonnais Variation? How about the La Bourdonnais-Kalashnikov Variation? After pondering this critically important question I came to the conclusion that the simple Neo-Sveshnikov was best. The reasons for this:

1) Sveshnikov has taken it up and used it extensively in the last few years.

2) It bears a resemblance to the Sveshnikov Variation (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5) and can transpose into this line in some instances.

3) Neo-Sveshnikov is less effort to say than La Bourdonnais-Kalashnikov.

While writing this book I wanted to stay away from actual Sveshnikov lines. However, this was not always possible and in most cases moves other than 5.Nb5 are best answered by going into promising Sveshnikov transpositions. Due to this I have given these lines in full since I can't bring myself to force the poorer student to buy several more books on this and similar openings. One easy to follow book is quite adequate!

One final bit of information. This is not a Black to play sort of thing! I try to be impartial and give all available lines for both sides. Because of this the present work is suitable for those who play 1 .e4 and wish to prepare against this line and also for Sicilian players who want to leam this very interesting way of generating counterplay for Black.
