Learn How to Beat the Paulsen Sicilian!

If you play 1.e4, you need to know how to deal with it!

When you play e4, you have to be ready for war. And it’s not always clear who you will be fighting.

The French, the Spanish… the Sicilian mafia?

Even if you’ve got an understanding with Don Najdorf, what about the devious Don Paulsen?

By playing an early …e6 instead of …d6, your enemy threatens to unleash that dark-squared bishop, hold your c3 knight hostage and extort payment in the form of the e4 pawn.

Which is why the Paulsen (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 a6) is fast becoming the new favorite for Sicilian players.

If you play 1.e4, you need to know how to deal with it.

And GM Rashad Babaev is back to help you out with a free lesson from his stunning new 80/20 Tactics course.

GM Rashad Babaev
covers the Nd5 sac…

  • This is a long-term sac, giving up material to damage Black’s position and obtain attacking chances. You need to keep up the pressure.
  • It’s played when the Black king is in the center, with the aim of keeping him there.
  • Studying this sacrifice will hone your all-round understanding of attacking play.
  • The attack is so strong, White can even afford to trade queens AND offer further sacrifices in some variations! See how Nd5! and Nc6! took down a 2685 GM here (diagram).
