CD "Novosibirsk Sicilian B33"

The Lasker-Pelikan System (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5) is one of the most popular, aggressive and intelligible variations in the Sicilian Defence. The Novosibirsk Sicilian 10...Bg7 (after 6.Ndb5 d6 7.Bg5 a6 8.Na3 b5 9.Bxf6 gxf6 10.Nd5) is the original and cunning variation in the Lasker-Pelikan System. This variation was created and developed in the early 1980s players from Novosibirsk: Victor Kim, Boris Schipkov, Anatoly Vaisser and Vasilij Malyshev. World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen played the Novosibirsk Variation.

The learning database includes 14 texts, 2647 games, of which 275 are annotated. Only in English and chess notation. The large database includes 31091 games (the most recent games about 10th December, 2003, e.g. from Santo Domingo Open 2003). All games in the ChessBase and PGN formats. Dozens of games are unknown and are published in the first time. The texts has been duplicated in the HTML. Also this CD contains free PGN readers and chess playing programs. But I recommend to use ChessBase 12 or free ChessBase Light.
I think my new CD is suited for club players and international league players who prefer 1.e4 for White or who prefer 1...c5, followed by 5...e5 for Black. I have written laconic commentaries for all lines and almost all moves after 5...e5 with evaluations of the positions in the chapters. So a reader (student or player) can choose lines or moves that is suited for him.
Now this CD has only a historical value, you can easily improve my lines with a little help from chess computer programs.

Price: 90 Euro. Normal shipping: 10 Euro.
