thanks, clear and concise... to the end..
Verry instructive analysis, I mostly see this position arising from 1.c4
And when the position from this variation occurs, most of them play f4.
The idea with Rb8! has saved me a lot of games, and helped a lot, thank you!
I liked the video.I must watch it again to pick up more detail.Keep them coming.
Thanks Eugene, nice game.
Thank you for a good lesson!

It's so nice to hear a grandmaster explain their games.
GM Eugene welcome to Chess.com. I have enjoyed your lectures on Chesslecture.com and looking forward to more lectures here. Interesting enough I have started playing closed Sicilian as White at times and learned a lot as to what black can do.
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
Many Sicilian players are confident defending the sharp, wild attacks of the open Sicilian, yet feel helpless and afraid in the closed variations as the opponent slowly oozes over the kingside, while they struggle to find an effective counter-- in the center? on the kingside? In this video GM Perelshteyn gives a good black answer for an important white approach to the closed Sicilian.
