Sicilian Thematic Match 4-0 for White

A Sicilian thematic match was held in South Carolina, very few of its kind so this is a welcome addition to our chess attraction. The player are Judith Polgar vs Gregory Kaidanov. The match is closely facilitate by Susan Polgar in her blog. The final result is a draw 2-2 for them but color wise it is a perfect 4-0 for White side.

For those who not familiar with Kaidanov, Susan give a bit of preview on him :
1. He was ranked as the top U.S. player for many years.
2. He represented the U.S. in many Olympiads.
3. He has very deep understanding of chess and you just don't lose this.
4. He won the Aeroflot Open clear first and this is the strongest Open Swiss tournament in the world.

And he is also a reputable coach in US from what I read in Chess Life magazine.

I convert two games from Susan Polgar commentary into an interactive chess player for your enjoyment. Bottom notes is, there are many book written in Sicilian defence, maybe compare to other opening? New book on Sicilian :

7 Way to Smash the Sicilian
New Sicilian Dragon by Simon Williams
Play the Sicilian Kan by Johan Hellsten
Dangerous Weapon: Anti Sicilian by John Emms etc.
ABC of Sicilian Dragon DVD by Andrew Martin
