Especially in the Kan ... Just the key moves and the general strategy. I find these Sicilians solid and dynamic at the same time more than the French I think, but the Bind is deadly if White knows what is doing ... I would really appreciate a feedback thanks in advance
The starting positions are these:
I actually have a forum on this. I recommend going into a hedgehog formation and later planning to bust through with d5 or b5.
Going for a hedgehog with ...Nf6, ...Qc7 and ...b6 is the most reliable plan indeed. Or Black can go pawn hacking at a certain risk: 5...Nf6 6.Nc3 Qc7 7.a3 (most frequently played, to stop ...Bb4) 7...Nxe4!? 8.Nxe4 Qe5. Black ends a few pawns up, but has rather serious developmental issues. Probably good for the risky guys.
Thanks I'm asking because there are videos abot this topic at chess.com but they're about d6 Sicilians (Accelerated Dragon etc...). Besides as far as I know the White mainline against the Kan is Nc3 not c4 so the bind is not considered so threatening .
What I like about the kan is that it stops all white early tricks, but the bind had been a problem at least for me
