Countering All the Sicilian Sidelines
(4 hours 38 min)
The mainlines of Sicilian Defense, starting after 2.Nf3, are often sharp with many complex variations. Studying them is too time-consuming.
So many 1.e4 players, who don’t have much time to study openings, will prefer to play an Anti-Sicilian Setup.
Even at ChessMood we recommend playing the Closed Sicilian with 2.Nc3 for the White pieces.
So if you play the Sicilian you need to be well prepared against its sidelines too! ...
In this course you'll see how to play against sidelines lines like Alapin (2.c3), Anti-Sicilian (2.Nc3 variation), Morra Gambit (2.d4) and rare moves like 2.b4, 2.b3, 2.g3, 2.f4.
Below are some of the positions taken from the course:
Once you finish the course, you’ll be well-equipped to handle any Sicilian sideline that you face.
Let’s jump in!
