    During his time theory was not as developed and they played more classically. It's not really a surprise that he didn't like it. e5 was de facto back then.

    Here is some fun in the Closed Sicilian. Black makes a bad Knight move, followed by a bad King move, and then walks into mate. This is the first time I have played the Closed Sicilian as White, and I'm sure we leave book fairly early. Any comments?

    Dutch, I used to play the Grand Prix Attack (before switching to the virtually unbeatable Morra) & after
    1.e4...c5
    2.f4...d6?
    3.Nc3...Nc6


    4.Bc4? is not a good idea because black can easily push-away & expand with Nf6 & d5 or e6 & d5 as in your game.

    Instead an early
    4.Nf3 is much better in the GPA, leading to most likely
    4...Nf6
    5.Bb5...a6
    6.Bxc6+!...bxc6
    7.d4...cxd4
    8.Qxd4

    With white having a distinct edge

    black to move

    White looks to castle KS, play Be3, R(a)d1 etc.
    If the queen is attacked with c5 you have Qc4 - she has been pushed to a better square!
