    you start a game and make that as the position make sure it is unrated 2400 min 2500 max so no one will take it and then you can post it.

    Tom, wow...bad advice again.

    Moon-Click New game, then advanced, then set piece, set up the position you want and in that window the current FEN you want will be listed. You also need to specify if you want to know if you'd be playing the black side or the white side, but white's 7th and 8th moves won't happen. 7.f4 is probably more likely, and who's going to take on b5 there?

    ...Are you playing white or black? And like I said, who's going to play Nxb5?

    it gives you 2 passed pawns which i think at least it very strong and after black takes (im not sure about it %100 yet) the Bishop takes and you pined blacks night then you can take on f6 etc.

    2 passed pawns are great, but you've lost the piece, and my point was that a LOT of players will not play Nxb5. Also, Bxb5 e6 and the pin isn't that important now.

    wait so your saying its good but not popular since you lose a peice early in the gme?

    I didn't say it was good. I think it's good for black, If you want to play white against mainline Sicilian I recommend the English attack. It follows the line you gave up to move 6. so 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Be3.

    It's strong, white plans queenside castle and an attack on black's kingside.

    when i play the sicicilian as black that does come to mind and you can pawn storm the queenside but i dont think its a very good idea. Nbd7 is also a bad move. first you are suppose to move e6. the sicicilian is a very sharp opening and Nbd7 cannot be decided until later in the game. also why not go Bd5 and attack his rook?he still has to waste one more move to move the knight to f6 while you can develope faster. i'll play you a game and you can test out your sicicilian against me.
