TWIC 1250 Sicilian 3.Bb5

Selected games

Here are a couple of nice examples

Example 1

Granda Zuniga-Vidit

3..g6  4.Bxc6 bxc6-6.c3

34th ECC Open 2018 rd6

After 18..e5(Diagram)

Black has the bishop pair while White has fewer pawn islands. If left undisturbed Black will try to load up on the d-file and perhaps send the knight to d4

What do you recommend for White?

After 18..e5

Example 2

Antipov,M-Vuckovic

3..g6 4.Bxc6 dxc6-6.Re1 Nh6

34th ECC Open 2018 rd6

After 21..Bd7(Diagram)

Black has a wonderful blockading Ne6 but his bishops are not doing very much at the moment. White can possibly play on the queenside by preparing the b3-b4 expansion with a2-a3. Or perhaps a kingside attacking with h4-h5(after Kg2 etc and suitable preparation)

What do you recommend for White?

After 21..Bd7
