    Grandmaster Viorel Bologan's theoretical work is devoted to the Rossolimo system in the Sicilian Defense (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5). Once reputed to be harmless to blacks, this scheme has come to the forefront of modern opening theory and is regularly seen in top-level competitions, including world championship matches. Due to the deep positional basis and the absence of long computer options "to a draw" the system moved the continuation 3.d4 into the repertoire of many elite grandmasters. In the Rossolimo system, original pawn structures often appear that require unconventional, deeply thought-out actions.
    The book is addressed primarily to those who want to use this system for whites. However, and "black" it will also be useful: all the most dangerous schemes for White are considered here, and the lateral variations are easy to study on your own. Decision positions will help you get a better feel for the strategic and tactical intricacies of this system.
