    anyone here on rhp play 2. ...e6 in the open sicilian? I know very little of it personally and meet it with 3. d3, setting up the King's Indian Attack.

    King's Indian Attack is a white system that impersonates the King's Indian Defense.

    here's a great example of it being employed vs 2. ...e6

    Thats the closed Sicilian, some people call that the anti sicilian because the intentionally avoid, d4

    Yeah you just dont see that, that much

    i've only met 2. ...e6 twice in my short chess life and both times 3. d3 and the game transposed to positions of the KIA resembling those after 1. e4 e6 2. d3 d5

    a closed sicilian would employ the queens knight to c3, not the more passive d2

    In fact, you don't ever see the KIA very much at all!

    I think it's most common in Bullet Chess where you can pump out the formation (King's knight to f3, d3, queens knight to d2, g3, Bg2, O-O...) without really paying attention to what black does

    I find the Scilican the hardest to defend for beginners.

    2. Nf3 would be the best move I think
    Usually responded by Nc6

    actually d6 is more popular...

    I've never had any real problems with open sicilian systems with 2. ...Nc6 (hell I myself use the Accelerated Dragon) and with 2. ...d6, I'm more than willing to play the white side of the Najdorf and Dragon.

    I play 2...e6 mostly. Because I play the Shavenien (don´t know the letters...xD) and that variation can be reached with both: 2...d6 and 2...e6 (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.e5 doesn not work ...Qa5+ wins a pawn and therfore white can only transpode)

    But if U use the 2...e6 move order U avoid all Bb5+ or not + variations.

    2...e6 can also be used to reach the Kan and the Taimanov variations.

    its used to avoid the Maroczy bind as a bonus

    Wich line do you play against the dragon and najdorf. I have thought about playing 6.f4 against the dragon but I have some trouble against the najdorf. Is the english attack good?

    6.Bc4 vs Najdorf and always a Yugoslav Attack (with 9.Bc4) vs the Dragon
