Winning a tactical Sicilan
Winning a tactical Sicilian
This game was the second game between me and ag59. In the first he had opted for a Queen's pawn game (1.d4) and after being squeezed in the corner a bit I had managed to come out with a winning passer on the a-file.
In this game, I opted for a King's pawn game (1.e4) as I'm more at home in open games. He went for the Sicilian, which is known to be dynamic, unbalanced and dangerous. In general I would say that white had faster development which meant that after opening up the game black was in trouble. I have presented two tactics as puzzles. Enjoy!
