I recently joined this community. I love the great content and really like your repertoire choices.
Studying the Sicilian Sidelines course, I have some questions and feedback which I thought I'd share:
1. After 1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5, which setup do you recommend against 3.Nc3? (Unlike 1.e4 c5 2.g3 d5 3.Nc3, 1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5 3.Nc3 isn't discussed.)
2. I've had many online blitz games with 1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5 3.e5 Nc6 over the years. My opponents almost always play 4.Bb5 (or 4.c3) instead of 4.Nf3 here, presumably to avoid 4...Bg4. Which setup do you recommend here?
3. Which setup do you recommend against 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 that is compatible with the accelerated Dragon?
4. Which setup do you recommend against 1.e4 c5 2.Na3?
5. The last video of section 3 says that a summary of all three sections (and a surprise) follows, but I can't find such a summary.
6. In the line 1.e4 c5 2.b4 cxb4 3.a3 d5 4.exd5 Qxd5 5.Nf3 e5 6.Bb2 Nc6 7.axb4 Bxb4 8.Nc3 Bxc3 9.Bxc3, the author says that 9...Nf6 is answered with 10.Rb1 followed by 11.Bb5. While this makes sense to me strategically, 10.Rb1 is a losing move according to engines.
7. In the line 1.e4 c5 2.b4 cxb4 3.a3 d5 4.exd5 Qxd5 5.Nf3 e5 6.Bb2 Nc6 7.c4 bxc3 8.Nxc3, 8...Qe6 is a bad move according to engines.
Keep up the good work!
Great video series on the Rossolimo against 4. Bc6. What do you recommend if white plays 4. 0-0 instead?
IM Christof Sielecki in his book Keep it simple 1.e4 recommended 4. 0-0 and after 4...Bg7 he recommends 5. Re1.
I have been getting this variation over the board much more frequently than 4. Bc6 against 1900+ players and I am not sure what to do with black.
We have good news for you!
Tomorrow, on July 24, you can play 1-1 blitz games with GM Gabuzyan Hovhannes!

This game I'll comment tomorrow, changing a places with a game 50.
Here are the questions.
1. Where to develop the light square bishop?
a. e2 b. d3 c. b5
2. I know that from this position you can guess, that Bb5, but maybe in the game was a wrong move :) :)
Question - How to continue? White to move.
3. White to move. What about Ng7?
Feel free to share your thoughts :)
I've been struggling lately with the kings indian Nbd7 line. After 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 0-0 5. Be2 d6 6. Nf3 e5 7. 0-0 Nbd7 here is the critical point where i am searching for a plan for white. If u have a suggestion Avetik or someone who plays d4 let me know. Tx guys have a great day!
