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?
dident realise black can develop a good attack in the closed variations
I think that it is deadly for the black pieces for the most part.
It's ok I guess, could be better for white.
then what comes next? attack how?
I usually use the Sicilian defen normal variation, or the dragon variation.
nobody I've ever played used Gedult's openning.
This variation looks promising against a variation where white plays an early Be3 thereby giving you a d5 break with tempo due to the fork on d4. If white reserves the Be3 move opting for a kingside attack this may not be so effective.
never seen this before
