    I felt I played a good game in my local league tonight, but I finished it off with a dirty back rank trick which I learnt from Greenpawn's "Mastering Chess" book (I was amazed how many mating patterns there were that I didn't know):

    I can't be bothered with main line Sicilians, too much theory and too many traps to learn. Depending on how I feel on the night I play either the Closed Sicilian or the Wing Gambit, resulting, as you might expect, in wildly different positions.
