For all players who play the Sicilian Defense, 1...c5!! against 1. e4!! DO *NOT* JOIN if you do not play the Sicilian Defense.
If you join but I see you do not play the Sicilian Defense your join request will be denied.
All variations of the Sicilian are welcome!
Does anybody want to play some Sicilian games?
After 1.e4 everything besides 1...c5 is a minor sideline :p

Since all the other threads are archived and 1. e4 c5 2. Nc3, I thought I might as well create a new thread. Feel free to chat about the Sicilian here.
That is the Closed variation for white. As black against most Closed variations I recommend a Dragon setup (d6, g6, Bg7 etc) and then storm the queenside. White will storm the kingside. @GambitMas
I'm new to the team, so what do you guys recommend against the 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.g3 line?
@DJModulo Even if white is experienced Dragon is just fine, it's been played at top levels with success, black gets plenty of counterplay in the Yugoslav I personally prefer the Sveshnikov though,
Mostly playing Kan currently; I like its sidelines better than Najdorf's. Have played the Dragon before, but if White is experienced against it it's very hard to find the defense/counterattack balan
