I recently played a Sicilian Defense where white played a line I rarely see. Probably because black gets a lead in development. White's compensation seems to be getting out of the main line and trading queens. But even without the queens on board, black's lead in development means he can pick on white's weaknesses and white risks getting wholly tied down.
