No useful observations to offer. I'm not generally much of an e4 player nowadays but if I were I think I would find this general way of playing against 1...c5 quite attractive. You may get black out of his comfort zone and even if you don't, basically you've just got a game.

For my edification - are there any particularly lines/circumstances where you would recommend switching back into a normal Open Sicilian or is it largely a matter of choice?

Anyway thanks for another interesting video.

First of all, sorry for the late response, I've been busy and also my PC broke and I had to get it fixed.

To your question, I think like I said in the video, my point is that knowing these lines may put some practical problems for all kind of sicilian players, i think specially najdorf players and at intermediate/medium level, although you have seen it has worked at highest level too. When after 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 black has many choices, but what is the choice for the Najdorf player? 2...d6 the only way (2..a6 is possible but compromising) then you play 3.Nge2 and again black who wants to put up a Najdorf has to do something, and the choices are 3...a6 (wich seems reasonable but I don't quite like it, 3 pawns in a row and white is not even going to play d4 yet) so that leaves 3...Nf6 and now 4.g3 and lets make some balance, white has avoided some of the strongest lines against the closed sicilian because of his opponents intentions of playing the najdorf, it is not yet an open sicilian and not yet a closed sicilian, its all up to white.

So I think it's interesting, an idea for those games when you dont wanna go into the more theoretical lines or you want to get your opponent out of his book early, another interesting move order is 2.Ne2!? could be some sort of anti najdorf move order

Best regards
Renier

I just had to return here, when I realized that Vallejo is right now playing 2.Nc3 against Nyzhnik in the Bahia tournament, to me it looks like this move order is annoying to najdorf players

Cheers

Ok - thanks for your answer.

I've got one or two chess friends who like their Sicilian's so I might look at some games and give this a whirl - at least in non-serious encounters to begin with.

What line do you think sicilian players are least prepared for usually at a 1600-2000 level?

Taimanov, Paulsen Khan are kind of off beat sicilians at this level, Najdorf is what people learn, also accelerated dragon is harmful at this level

Best regards
