Hello ChessMood Family! Welcome to the video course Anti-Sicilian with 2.Nc3!? - Part 1
I see almost every chess player meet difficulties when deciding to learn the Sicilian defense and it is clear why. The Sicilian is too sharp, and almost all its variations, like Najdorf, Sveshnikov, Paulsen, Dragon themselves are not smaller than only one opening like French defense or Caro Kann.
So when you learn to play against Sicilian- in real, you learn against 5-7 openings at the same time. Here is the problem- that many chess players face. Some of them decide to go to some sidelines and agree not to fight for the opening advantage, some chess players in principle go to main lines, and very often get in bad positions, because the lines are very complicated, and even if you've learned there everything, for human being it is very hard to remember all of them.
Here is the solution that I offer you in this video course series. Against Sicilian instead of the main Nf3, I'll provide you material with the 2nd most popular move Nc3!
The lines that occur after Nc3, are very interesting, and it's very hard to play with black pieces if they don't know the theory. And if they know, or somehow find all the right moves in a row, all the positions that occur after that are very playable, interesting and the most important thing is that the initiative is almost everywhere in White's hands.
Below, you can see some of the diagrams of this video course.
I can 100% confidently say that the 2nd move Nc3 is a perfect weapon against Sicilian for all of you until you become an International Master or Grandmaster. My students' statistics prove my words, and soon will your statistics too when you finish all 3 parts of the video course series and start crushing your opponents.
Sicilian defense is very sharp; therefore I separated it into 3 parts.
In the first part, we will play against Sicilian with d6, in the 2nd - with Nc6, and in the 3rd part against e6.
So, make your tea, fasten your seatbelts, the journey of crushing the Sicilian with 2.Nc3 begins!
