    @EZASPI My two cents: Take off black's light squared bishop and one of white's knights, bring the g4 pawn back to g2, and castle kingside. Then white will have a large advantage due to the dominating N vs B situation. But as things are in the position on your diagram, black appears to have significant counterplay. Whichever knight goes to d5 for white will be a beast, but the other one will be less than stellar. Also, after white exchanges on f6, black can activate that bishop on g5, where it jeopardizes white's king safety. Plus, black has that half-open c file, which could become useful some day. And if white castles kingside, black might be able to play for f5, where white's pawn on g4 would clearly love to go back to g2. Of course, this is all just general analysis with no concrete lines.

    Thanks Mark. Very clear and easy to understand explanations. Even though I do not play the Sicilian as Black I still learned and enjoyed this.

    Brilliant lecture - I rarely face the Keres attack but at least I now know a few different ways to deal with it. Great stuff!

    Mr. Ginsburg,

    Great video.

    Could you please do a video on the Najdorf/Scheveningen Keres Attack with Kasparov's new move order that he used in his WC match against Karpov.  That would a really cutting edge video.

    your assesment of the implacations of Bg5 variation around 5:25 about black  exchanging light color bishop for knight on f5 then Nd4 is wrong because white can take d4 knight with queen then exq then BB5 check and black hhas to give up queen to stop mate as black doing Ke7 gets mated to nd5

    We reached this position. Wouldn't a good plan for White be BxN and plant a N on d5 permanently? I've read that this is positionally winning for White.
