Blitz Chess #359: Sicilian Defense, Chekhover variation

Blitz Chess #359: Sicilian Defense, Chekhover variation

Jun 20, 2016, 11:22 PM 1

This is a blitz chess game I played as black with time control 5|2. The opening played was the Sicilian Defense, Chekhover variation. In general, an early queen deployment is a good way to ask for trouble. Qd4 is however quite a viable option on move 4 in an option Sicilian instead of the standard knight recapture. After black's 5th, Nc6 attacking the queen, I was only use to seeing the pinning Bb5 move. White throws something different at me in this game which results in a white queen fleeing about. How can black try to take advantage of this is the big question.
