Crushing All the Sicilian's Sidelines
If you play Sicilian defence for black, it's very important to know all the sidelines well. Here is why. Sicilian is very sharp and there are so many variations and lines. Many 1.e4 players are just lazy to learn all of them!! If they play 2.Nf3 and then 3.d4 they should be prepared against many-many variations. Instead of that they just learn some sideline and try to get playable positions. If your ELO is under 2300, this will happen more often with you. Especially nowadays, when there are so many not trustworthy online sources to learn chess , it's very easy to find a guy, who is not even a master, but created a video course, explaining 1.e4 c5 2.b3, named it Crush the sicilian with 2.b3 or learn how to crush sicilian in 30 minutes, did some marketing
