1.e4 c5

The Sicilian is one of the major answers to 1.e4. Black takes control of the d4 square with a pawn from the side - thus he imbalances the position and avoids giving White a central target.

Pros:

  • Unbalances the game
  • Gives Black good chances of attack
  • Great opening when you need to play for a win

Cons:

  • White has many ways to meet the Sicilian
  • In the main variations White gets great attacking chances
  • There is a lot of theory
