If last week's show has you suffering the Berlin blues, cheer up! This week's show is as different as can be. No turgid maneuvers with a premium on flexibility, nosirree. The Velimirovic Attack against the Classical Sicilian is an ultra-sharp line requiring imagination, the ability to calculate deeply (and nowadays, of course, the ability to remember your computer preparation). White often sacs at least a piece and often more going in a straightforward and bloodthirsty manner for the poor Black king.
Sometimes it seems incredible that the aforementioned monarch could ever survive such an attack, but Black has its champions too, and we'll see a couple of nice examples of Alexander Beliavsky successfully snuffing out White's fire. The games are exciting, and I present the show so you can take it as an exercise in calculation, too. Whether you decide to take the challenge or not, you'll find the games and analyses entertaining, so have a look. The show is free, as always (free registration required), and will be available on-demand for the next month or so.
