What if white goes d4 after? cd ; M:d4 M:d4 ; H:d4 and gain center control
"2...Nc6 is a natural developing move, and also prepares ...Nf6 (like 2...d6, Black stops White from replying e5). After 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4, Black's most common move is 4...Nf6, when White usually replies 5.Nc3."
Otherwise, what do you think about 3.Bb5 (Rossolimo Variation) than the following sequence:
sicilian defence balance the control of center in opening and achieved a lot of variation favor for black.what i miss in this opening is to resolved the winning pattern from middle game to end game which the difficulties arrive for both are have lines in mating force the bishops is strong.but carried away if you castle in kingside when hpawn are coming after the defence should be a counter attack in the queenside which end soon for posistional playing for black if he can hold on the attack depends to the quality of the player who using white pieces! eg.carlsen vs kasparov(2004)tournament!sicilian (draw) by different color bishops! advice for black but should know the varation to defend the attack and to create counter attack.
better opening is sicilian yugolslav attack for white
what you saying bro's!!..!.. thats not an ordinary sicilian defense. thats we called the sicilian dubious line!!
this is a sicilian defence four knigths variation..and not old sicilian...
Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
I prefer to give a sequence to this opening, playing 3.Bb5 because if 3. ...e5 , then 4.0-0 Bd6 5.d3 a6 6. Bg5 Nf6 7.Ba4 0-0, and the game is balanced with a slight advantage for White.
Decent opening for both white and black.
most grandmaster used sisicilian by different verses..i wnt to master it by playing computer...and take note it..wish ill become best player
i play lot of sicilian and this one was good opening
