The opponent who answers 1 e4 with an emphatic 1...c5 The Sicilian Defence, is often looking for a fight. Such players can be highly theoretically prepared and itching to launch into their own pet variations after White has opted for the main lines with an early d2d4. The Closed Sicilian 2 Nc3 is an ideal antidote to such aggression. In the Closed Sicilian an awareness of the strategies and plans is far more important than the simple memorising of variations. White's play is logical and the basic ideas are simple to master. International Master Richard Palliser studies the Closed Sicilian in a clear cut way, introducing the crucial initial moves and ideas and taking care to explain the reasoning behind them, something that is sometimes neglected or taken for granted.
