    This Opening gives Black better chances than the Najdorf or the Dragon.

    This kind of opening seems to be more of an equalizer for Black mainly because of the close statistical percentage. In winning, White only edges Black by 1%!!! This seems to offer better chances for Black than most other sicilian variations. It gives Black too much to hope for or prepare against. I say this opening can be classed as theoretically and positionally unsound.

    This Opening most of the time leaves White with a cramped position in trying to guard e4 with a Knight. Since c3 is occupied by a pawn, the Knight on the Q-Side will have to move somewhere else just to be developed.

    The Alapin is a great opening! I use it all the time. There is a group on the Alapin if you want to learn more!

    the beginning might be interesting, and that's all the game has to offer.

    On the first variation, would it be better too push e6 instead of taking with the queen.
