I would try to play against a database of games to learn out best anti sicilian moves.

@Benford
Do you intend to ask the same question in every sub-forum?

g3 lines are solid and safe, but not "boring". Not sure this is a thing you should be looking for ever. Also g3 lines can be sharp and aggressive if you go for the kingside pawn storm lines.

As I'm not very strong you should take this with caution:

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3

a) a6 take 3.c3 or c4
b) Nc6 3.Bb5
c) d6 3.Bb5+
d) e6 KIA
e) Nf6 3.e5
f) g6 3.c4 and an open sicilian with a Maroczy-Bind according to Experts vs. the Sicilian.

Generally: You cannot expect to stay free from tactics and you have to be willing to play some gambit lines with this. The main point is that black will avoid those mostly.

B.e. 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Bd7 4.BxB+ QxB 5.c4 Qg4. You will be happy if black would go this way.

Positional, quiet and solid variations vs Sicilian

Hi,

For White, what are the variations that tend to lead on average to the most positional, solid, safe, quiet, slow, boring and strategic positions (i.e. the least sharp, aggressive and tactical positions) against the Sicilian Defense?

The variations also need to be satisfactory and reliable for White. They must not give Black instant equality.

Thanks in advance for your answers.
