  3. Queenside

In this game I tried a new idea, playing with white on the queen side in the Sicilian :

If your opponent blunders a piece you can do what you want and still win.

13...g6? was not smart, but 5...Bg4 probably already is a strategic mistake. The bishop does nothing useful there.

Maybe this is an ok idea but I agree your opponent blundered a lot so there is no proof


Seems like an interesting idea, although you should try it against a higher rated opponent. I guess there wouldn't be a risk of a kingside attack by black since queenside is usually black's area of the board in Sicilian anyway...If you're positional player you might like doing queenside attack rather than the standard Yugoslav.
