Today another one e4 opening a famous respond to white.


1.e4 c5

The Sicilian is one of the major answers to 1.e4. Black takes control of the d4 square with a pawn from the side - thus he imbalances the position and avoids giving White a central target.

Pros:

Unbalances the game

Great opening when you need to play for a win

Cons:

White has many ways to meet the Sicilian

In the main variations White gets great attacking chances
