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,
