Thanks guys! Smiley

Dare I say that the Classical will feature again before too long...but for now I do broadly agree with Bibs.

Deciding what to cover each month can, indeed, be tough. Many, many interesting Open Sicilians each week in TWIC!

Indeed, 'theory' as is suggests so. Either with h6-h5 8kicking first) or h5.
But there the game starts....

Interesting to see that Peter Wells still prefers the white side of the Richter-Rauzer as in Experts vs. sicilian. The improvement of Pontus Carlsson in the 8...Bd7 line makes me wonder which Richter-Rauzer lines are still playable  Roll Eyes


The Kozul lines are fine. Fun for black if white plays the f4 lines.

Pretty tricky if white plays the f3 stuff though. Got stuffed in a friendly f3 line training match by a mate.  Even if you prep very heavily, its still tough to play.

Any opinions about the Juli Update in the opening sicilian section?
I think it is simply superb ! Top-Games, excellent annotations by Wells and Palliser, the only improvement I can think of is that there should be enough Material for a weekly update.
currently I like the open sicilian section most.
