    Y'know, this closed variation puts soooo much pressure on Black's kingside, especially if he castles there.

    by the way, if someone plays this setup as white against the Silician, then

    play e6 and not b6. e6 destroys it. Then play aggresive with ur knights and I lose :P

    maimly, I play Ne2, Nbc3, 0-0, f4, maybe Bd3 Qe2 Bh6 but that dosent really work.

    Its all about e4, e5, f4, f5, and Nd5 is very important.

    does my opening sound rubish to u?

    probably g3 and f4 (grandprix attack) will lead to similar positions in closed scicilian although the latter gives black some extra options.

    to be honest, I've never played an open Sicilian :p

    I just play 2.g3(What do u call this?) or 2.f4(Cutty Sark)

    give it a try, you get a kingside attack, although its a little slower than normal open scicilians.

    play the closed scicilian, there is no central pawn majority for black and no open c file either, these things are a scicilian players bread and butter.
