How good is the Open Sic section?
Hi guys,
I have a subscription to the d4 d5-section by Sherbakov and am considering a subscription to the Open Sic's. But maybe I am a bit spoiled by Sherbakov?
Could anyone of you offer an ...

Rhodes Gambit?

Polgar - Shirov - I don't see a repeat by White
I don't see an exact repeat by White of the Linares 2001 game where white won in the English attack.  For instance, Berg - Odeev deviated (did not play Kd1 as Polgar did).  Is there a reason for the n...

2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 e6

f3 in Open Sicilian
I know in the 2 ... d6 vars this move is considered an acceptable alternative, but after 1.e4 c5 Nf3 Nc6 d4 cxd4 Nxd4 Nf6 f3!? is there some sort of way for black to deal with this?  As a Sveshnikov p...

O'Kelly Sicilian (2...a6) question
Hello  Roll Eyes
I'm interested by the O'Kelly sicilian (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 a6). Most authors say that 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 e5 is OK for Black as it gives an improved version of Sveshnikov Sicilian (as Nb5 is p...
