Your posts are very ‘loose’. Have you actually studied this at all? Got some books, had a go? You offer questions, but zero input.

Yes, Classical is fine. It’s another unbalanced Sicilian. There is theory available there.

It partly depends on your level - which is what? You may be better with the black side of 1.e4 e5 at the moment though, judging from the posts. Start with the open games. Much later move to semi-open.

Good luck in your chess journey.


Sorry

The Classical Sicilian is a good line, but not as popular as many of the other Sicilians. The Richter-Rauzer can be a problem, but Black has been doing well in a couple of variations recently, see the recent Open Sicilian updates, https://www.chesspublishing.com/content/4/jun21.htm for instance.

Hi all,

I been thinking of playing a sicilian and was wonder about the classic sicilian. Actually I always thought it was a kind of Nijdorf but it seems like it is different. I been reading stuff that it is solid and not as much theory as other sicilians. Would you say it is a double edged opening (both sides are attacking each other or are you trying to survive white attacks). Is it recommended or should I go with something else. Just trying to get a feel of what the opening is like. Thanks
