Do you have a fantastic memory and a liking for sharp positions, the evaluations of which can change with a few taps of a computer button? If so, then the main lines of the Open Sicilian are for you. But if you are one of the 99% of chess players who do NOT fall into this category, and open 1 e4, then the Closed Sicilian is a worthwhile option.

The Closed Sicilian offers White a set of easy-to-understand plans, the chance of a kingside attack and little danger of being outgunned by tactics in the opening. In this course I will introduce you to several different lines, all operating under the Closed Sicilian banner, but which are all separate in their own way. You will have variety at your disposal! First, we will look at the main lines of the Closed Sicilian, where I will recommend a practical system for White. Then we go on to look at 2 d3, where you have the extra option of c2-c3, instead of Nc3. Finally, we will look at the unexpected 2 Be2!?, where White generally tries to turn the game into a reversed Dutch.

All these weapons have distinct merit, and will make up a dangerous arsenal for club-players worldwide to face-down the Sicilian. The Closed Sicilian remains a solid and promising option for White, avoiding sharp theory and guaranteeing a complicated middlegame position with plenty of winning chances. We begin our investigation with that positive thought.
