Sniper: Play 1...G6, ...Bg7 And ...C5! - download book
Welcome Soldier! - Your Sniper training programme will commence on completion of your absorption of this introduction - Do not read any part of this book until you have read this entire introduction. That's an order Soldier!
Let us start with some key definitions to give us an important reference point in this approach to create a dynamic Black repertoire where you will fight for the full point:
Black plays ...g6, ...Bg7 and ...c5 against anything, including 1 e4, 1 d4,1 c4, etc. It is played ideally in the first three moves, but some rare instances when it is played later on are also covered as a Sniper opening.
The Pure Sniper
Against any of White's first three moves. Black plays 1...g6, 2...Bg7 and 3...c5. This book promotes this move order in nearly every variation.
The Sicilian Sniper
Against any of White's first three moves. Black plays 1...g6, 2...Bg7 and 3...c5. Some of the games in this book come about from this move order but could just have easily arisen via the Pure Sniper move order.
White aims to stop the Pure Sniper deployment For example, an Anti-Sniper that would obviously lead to a won position for White is 1 b3, 2 Bb2 and 3 Bxg7! This is one of the few instances where White can prevent a Pure Sniper.
