use it playing with black.best defence.
I really hate the sicilian, because it delays you developing your pieces!
Usually (in most types of opening games) white opens with e4. It is black who decides it is going to be sicilian. How is it good for black?
It prepares to advance the d-pawn, and strengthens white's center. It also provides the queen with a potential post at c2, b3, or a4
I am not very good at chess, so can somebody explain to me how the pawn move to c3 is helpful?
In this variation just play 2...d5 then 3.ed 3...Qxd5 4.d4 4...Nf6 5.Nf3 5...Bg4 i did alot of analyzing on my program and it says this is the best variation in this opening, try it out if you want.
and then you have to move something to backup that pawn because its all by itself like bait with no hook
why is this good? just because you get some reach w/ the pawn and the diagnal with youre bishop and queen? i dont like throwing the queen into the middle of the board at the bigining of a round...
No a la siciliana!!! Viva el ajedrez de ataque!!! http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=632753698
