What's the bestvariation of the Siccilian plz give reason also.
there is no best and the reason why is because each side has too many viable options to avoid forcing lines in most variations
There is no "best" variation. Every variation of the Sicilian is fun for both sides. For black I prefer Taimanov and Najdorf variations, and with white I usually play lots of different stuff in the open sicilians.
Well then whats your favorite.Sorry
I go through phases. By the time I'm 25, I'll probably have played every conceivable Sicilian.
As Black I play the Sicilian Najdorf/Scheveningen style (6...a6, 7...e6) because it is the variation that most seriously challenges White for the initiative (the attack).As White I play the English Attack (6.Be3, 7.f3 or 7.Qd2) because it gives White the most plans attack against Black's chosen defensive formation.
I usually play the taimanov, it doesn't give up control of the d5 square as other sicilian lines do, and offers nice counerattack like most sicilians
