Here is a game from the 51st Reggio Emilia Tournament, GM Marin - IM Shytaj with full annotations and commentary:





In this game we saw good execution of the reversed Sicilian starting out of the English opening. This shows how we can use our opening knowledge of some black systems and transfer it to the white pieces. In this game white played the typical kingside fianchetto used in many Sicilian positions with the black pieces as well as pushing forward the c-pawn two squares before developing the Queen's Knight. Even with the white pieces the Sicilian strategy can have success!
