White's Thematic Sacs in the Sicilian Defense
Compiled by Sharpen Your Tactics
--*--

These games are from 7 ways to smash the Sicilian by Yury Lapshun and Nick Conticello.

As the authors state: Why devote an entire book to piece sacrifices in the Open Sicilian you may ask. The reason is quite simple: without a full understanding of these ideas you can not win in this opening! ..... White has more space, a lead in development and the initiative. According to the teachings of Steinitz, White must use these advantages to attack or suffer unpleasant consequences.
