    Ivanh3, I think the purpose of a6 is to prepare for black's queenside attack. It also prevents important white pieces to advance on the queenside.

    I do not understand the purpose of the ...a6. Can someone explain this?

    What a brilliant video I really learnt a lot about my favourite najdorf variation! Would chess.com please consider making a video on the bowler attack as I see it all the time?

    What about the closed Sicilian? Like if there isn't a c-d pawn exchange?

    When you say d5 is the most important square for black, is this an overall general statement, or is this statement particular only when Black is playing the Sicilian?

    Thank you. I like videos where there is a clear explanation of what both sides are trying to achieve, and your descriptions of the overall plan for white and black certainly make it easier to decide which variations to choose.

    I'll watch this video many times.

    Great video. Some of it was way beyond a beginner like me, but I suppose I have to start somewhere. :) @Quiche31, I didn't have any audio problems at all.

    like it when you said"cannibalism(or however you spell it) is not allowed in chess"

    so then don't comment

    To call this a video for beginners strikes e as absurd. There is so much jam packed into one video I found it mind boggling. Surely there must be a better way to introduce Sicilian defenses but I am in no position to comment at this point in time.
