    Game 4444274

    It was so good I decided to make the GPA my favorite against Sicilian -
    Anyone have any ideas about this game or on the GPA?

    After 2... d5, black is already better.

    I suggest you play first 2. Nc3 and 3.f4 to prevent 2...d5. Otherwise, white is the one struggling to equalize.

    "After 2... d5, black is already better." is obvious exaggeration. Aftr 2...d5 position is about equal.

    Btw. There is incomplete game history.

    Incomplete history, looked like white had advantage...but it drew?

    I thought blacks position was not too bad, but he let it slip with some loose moves - white was winning at the end.

    Yes we drew as part of a deal.
    It should still show the moves....but I believe TYRAN is right - black's loose moves enabled me to get a good space advantage.

    But...chesskid brings up a good point. I think 2...d5 is best for black - what is a good response for white? Nc3!? or exd?

    This line is practically forced and can lead to a very wild game. Once I get two games of my game load I'd like to play this line as white against someone. Ideally not a too higher rated player since I'm still learning this thing.
