Sicilian Defense: Scheveningen
I have been studying the book Pawn Structure Chess by Andrew Soltis. While reading it I started to look up games in the data base here on Chess.com. It made reading the book much easier. This particular post is meant to be a companion to the book. This is sort of my way of taking notes.
Who am I? I'm rated 1550 here on chess.com. I've been playing Sicilian defense as Black with very little actual knowledge of the openings involved. So I'm trying to study up and improve my game. I've found this opening somewhat neglected here on chess.com, at least in video format. I searched keywords "closed Sicilian" and found some good stuff. More on that later.
The Open Sicillian English: Scheveningen.
Black sets up pawns at d6 and e6 with control over d5 and e5.
