The Sveshnikov is a very important variation of the Sicilian Defence. It was pioneered by Russian grandmaster Evgeny Sveshnikov in the 1970s and has since become a popular choice for Black at all levels, from club player to grandmaster. One of the Sveshnikov’s main attractions is that it provides a battleground for one of the key conflicts in chess: structure versus activity. Black sacrifices structure in return for active piece play – a dynamic that regularly leads to sharp and complex positions, rich in strategic and tactical possibilities.
