Blitz Chess #346: Sicilian Defense, 4. g3

This is a blitz chess game I played as white with time control 3|0. The opening was the Sicilian Defense where white opts for a g3 based setup. Black gives precedence to a queenside expansion early on in this one. It results in both the demotion of white’s queen knight, and a lag in development.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who learned how to play from my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
