Black has a higher win rate than white, so why would white play it?
Bom saber também jogo isso a muito tempo, mas isso depende de gostos né, se gost de atacar ou defender.
this doesnt help me with my games either
I have played both sides of the closed Sicilian in tournament play. I have found that the white side is easier to play with good attacking chances. The most stubborn play for black side in the practical examples I met was the "Botvinnik" pawn structue allowing the trade off of Blacks dark squared bishop.
a wow variation
preparation for castling
I dont use this opening... it's gives to black initiation.... if someone is not agree with with me plz pm me the reason
I play this practically all the time. I like to call it the anti-Sicilian because those who do not know how to counter this and are not well versed as black in the Sicilian variations will find themselves getting into trouble very quickly
I think that white has the obvious advantage. Bishop for attacker of any pawn, knight to defened the pawns. HMMM?
dident realise black can develop a good attack in the closed variations
I think that it is deadly for the black pieces for the most part.
It's ok I guess, could be better for white.
then what comes next? attack how?
