Dear ChessMood family, welcome to the video course, the nightmare of Rossolimo! :)
This is a very popular variation, very interesting and many top Grandmasters play it with white, and even in the World Championship 2018 Caruana-Carlsen, this was the main preparation, the main weapon of Caruana against Sicilian.
However as the match showed, Carlsen was prepared better as he found a few improvements for black, and soon after a few games, Caruana stopped to play Rossolimo and switched to the main line with 3.d4.
Before with our Grandmaster team, we were not sure what is the best continuation for black against Rossolimo, but after the match, we analyzed the line that played Carlsen very deep, found out all the hidden ideas there and absolutely understood the decision of Caruana, to stop playing Rossolimo anymore.
In this video course, I'll show you all the important lines and ideas we have found with our team, so you go to the game very confident and well prepared against Rossolimo, knowing not only lines and plans but also the improvements that are not in the theory yet, which will give you a big practical advantage.
