🔹 Crush the Sicilian Defense: Unknown & DEADLY TRAP for White –
In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shows you how to crush the Sicilian Defense as White with a solid yet tricky opening variation. It is the delayed Alapin variation which happens after the following moves: 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.c3.
This seemingly simple move is so powerful as it helps you to establish strong central pawns. And not just that, there are so many tricks, traps, and pitfalls along the way and Black would end up losing if they are not careful.
