1 e4, c5 is the Sicilian defence, which is considered as real test of 1 e4. White has 3 options: A- maintain strong hold on e4 and develop a king side attack, B- get strong hold on central squares e4 and d4 by playing c3 as preparatory move to d4, and C- exchange of d4 pawn with a piece, with aim of developing easily and gaining space
