After a research of nearly half a month , ive decided to play what against the sicilian. Dont know if its good but chess engines give a good reply on this.
1.e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6/g6/whatever and 6.f4
(Sorry but i cant post the diagram as im working on android. Someone can do it for me as a favour)
All replies and analysis are welcome.
No comments yet:(
I just said anti sicilian in the sense that im gonna play this against sicilian
anti-sicilian and against sicilian are totally different,Also why would you need so much time to be spent to say ur going to play f4 ,i would do it in more like 10 min
I analysed other things like grand prix , moscow, alapin and in the end found this.
No one commented yet on the moves.
Thnx articlegenius. So is it ok against sicilian
sure but it is almost like a main line sicilian
I looked it up but couldnt find anything
6.f4 is not considered dangerous, but it's certainly playable.
A lot of coffeehouse type players like to mix it up with 1. e4 c5 2. f4 right off the bat as an anitsicilian attempt. This usually leads to interesting games.
But 1.e4 c5 2.f4 can lead to 2.....d5
Better players then you think otherwise. That's why 2. Nc3 is the more popular move order.
2.f4 is extremely rare, but at the amateur level I'm sure it's perfectly fine - Black players will play 2...d5 and not realize they're supposed to gambit a pawn or the correct plans afterward since they only memorize and don't understand anything.
Try opening with d4...?
