My White repertoire vs. the Sicilian: Part 2

Introduction

Welcome to the second part of my opening repertoire against the Sicilian in which we are going to cover the remaining Sicilian variations. In the first part, the Rossolimo Sicilian, we looked at 3.Bb5 after 2...Nc6. Similarly, in this series, we are going to spend a lot of time discussing 3.Bb5+ after 2...d6. Black has two main choices, the traditional Bd7 and the highly topical Nd7 which is often preferred by Najdorf players.

Besides 2...d6, we will also take a look at 2...e6 which I would like to answer with the inconspicuous yet tricky 3.b3. Furthermore, I am going to show you how to deal with 2...g6, the Nimzowitsch variation 2...Nf6 as well as the O'Kelly variation 2...a6. Against all of Black options I opt for comfortable positions for White which can be played for a win while not taking many risks. Let's get started!
