Arsen Attack

This opening borders on orthodox countrv. and indeed 1 & f3 2 b3 is now a common sight on the tournament scene. The 44purer version which allows 1 e5 is somewhat less common, however, and so we will glance at the line, giving a suggestion for Black which we feel allows him to play with confidence. To those who protest that the opening ought to be named after Owen, who played it on numerous occasions over a century ago, we point out that it was also seen in Suhle-Anderssen, 1859.

Chameleon Sicilian

1 e4 e5 2 > e2 with 3 & bc3, or 2 < Sc3 < Sc6 3 < & ge2 White's strategy is subtly to trick Black into playing the wrong Sicilian variation. This system has been employed with frequent success by American GM Andy Soltis (nowr you know what to do about one American GM ). We recommend the Chameleon for people who like the open Sicilian but haven't come to grips with the Najdorf or the Dragon. At the very least. Black will lose clock time figuring out if you are going to open or...
