    I have played both sides of the closed Sicilian in tournament play.  I have found that the white side is easier to play with good attacking chances.  The most stubborn play for black side in the practical examples I met was the "Botvinnik" pawn structue allowing the trade off of Blacks dark squared bishop.

    I play this practically all the time. I like to call it the anti-Sicilian because those who do not know how to counter this and are not well versed as black in the Sicilian variations will find themselves getting into trouble very quickly

    I think that white has the obvious advantage. Bishop for attacker of any pawn, knight to defened the pawns. HMMM?

    I think that it is deadly for the black pieces for the most part.

    I usually use the Sicilian defen normal variation, or the dragon variation.
