Der er kun at sige: denne bog er tredje bind i en meget lovende repertoire serie. Et must for alle 1.e4 spillere.

For en topspiller det meget sjældent at de stiller deres repertoire til frit skue, men det gør Negi i denne bog. Bogen er fuld af overvejelser om strukturer. Altid positionelt sunde varianter, men med blik for taktiske muligheder.

Negi har en dejlig fortællende stil, uden at forfalde til dybe (og for os dødelige uforståelige og lange computervarianter).

Bogen rummer et hvidt repertoire imod:
- Dragevarianten
- Accelereret drage
- Rauzer
- Varianter med 4. ..,e5 (Lowenthal og Kalasnikov)
- Sveshnikov

Siciliansk er nok en af de åbninger, der kan mønstre de fleste meget lange og dybe computervarianter.

Netop derfor vil jeg mene at denne bog har dens store berettigelse. I en skak parti imellem mennesker vil forståelse af strukturer i langt de fleste tilfælde overtrumfe en computer tillært tilgang. For hvem kan huske en computervariant, som man har kigget på måneder tilbage? De færreste. 

Vurdering af målgruppen:
Min vurdering er at man skal have mindst 1800-1900 i rating- og være indstillet på fordybelse - for at få det fulde udbytte af serien, men så kan man også løfte ens niveau med flere hundrede ratingpoint 

Om forfatteren: 
Negi er født i 1993, og blev stormester som 13-årig. Har vundet Politiken Cup (nu "Xtracon Chess Open") 2 gange, i 2009 og 2013. I 2014 spillede Negi førstebræt på Indiens hold ved Skak OL i Tromsø, hvor Indien vandt bronze. 

Som 20-årig toppede Negi´s rating i 2013 med 2671. Siden har det virket som om Negi har haft svært ved at tage de sidste skridt imod verdenseliten. 

Men uagtet dette, så var det et scoop at vi her har en velskrevet åbningsserie af en topspiller.

Som altid med Quality bøger assisteret af et team. I dette tilfælde Jacob Aagaard, Nikos Ntirlis og Andrew Greet.

Anmeldelser:

"Another instalment of Parimarjan Negi's continuing quest to make all opening books for Black against 1.e4 obsolete.

Negi is actually a godsend for a book reviewer because I can more or less repeat what I said in my previous columns! Once again this is a work of the very highest quality. I'm not a lifelong Open Sicilian player so I sometimes feel a little insecure judging the quality of the analysis. I tend to compare the lines Negi suggests with other books I’ve read recently to see whether he addresses their recommendations. He rarely fails me!"

GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

"The younger generation tends to depend more on the computer. At the level they are now, why not add another dimension by reading more, I try to say, at least when you have great authors like Parimarjan Negi. His books on the Sicilian are absolutely fabulous."

GM Simen Agdestein, New in Chess

"Even after all these years, I still get a kick when I receive a new chess book. But there’s something special about getting a Negi book. Perhaps it’s knowing that the pages are full of exciting and practical novelties, or maybe it’s an expectation that each volume contributes concretely to furthering modern opening theory. Or maybe I just like the writing. Regardless, the third of the series lived up to my hopes once again.

To sum up, this book is once again an outstanding work and worth every penny, if only on a novelty quota alone. When I review a new book, I review HARD, and I go out of my way to look for holes. This makes it difficult for any author to meet my high expectations, but Negi continues to impress me. If I weren’t so lazy, I’d even take up the Open Sicilian myself after reading this one! Another Negi book, another five stars."

GM David Smerdon (full review)

"The Glasgow based firm Quality Chess continues to produce top of the line opening books that one could only dream of a decade ago. Its latest effort is by the Indian Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi, his third book in a multi-volume series and arguably his best to date.

The new work, 1.e4 vs. The Sicilian II, covers the Dragons Richter-Rauzer, Kalashnikov, Lowenthal and Sveshnikov in a level of detail that make for interesting reading for top Grandmasters, but in a style that is also accessible for much lower-rated, but ambitious players."
