This game started out as an English, but soon transposed into a Sicilian.  I decided to play the game in a flexible manner, hoping for latent opportunities on the Queenside or in the center.  As it turned out, the opportunity came in the center and the game was over soon afterward.  The plan of 9.Nc2 and b3 followed by Bb2 is quiet and solid, however it does seem to leave White all the good chances.
