The c3 Sicilian – Crushing Black’s Sidelines

♕ MORE: |

The c3 Sicilian is itself a sideline against the Sicilian Defense, but that doesn’t mean that black has to follow the main lines either! After 1. e4 c5 2. c3 there is ample room to maneuver for black as he maintains a variety of different moves at his disposal. The main lines of the c3 Sicilian after 1. e4 c5 2. c3 are 2. ..e6, d5, d6, and g6 – but what should you do if black deviates from these principal continuations? In the following chess video excerpt from the chess DVD ¨Crushing Black – the c3 Sicilian¨ experienced Grandmaster Ron W. Henley explains the best plans for white against two very interesting sidelines involving 1. e4 c5 2. c3 e5!? and 1. e4 c5 2. c3 d6 3. d4 Nf6!? – variations that are potentially very dangerous for white if you are not familiar with proven set-ups and patterns of development.
