Rossolimo Attack
Compiled by alxlevin

legija: I started playing chess on tournaments in 2004. Had problem with the sicilian,dragon,najdorf and then I learned the Bb5 sicilian against both 2...Nc6 and 2...d6. I'm proud to say, I won 37 games with it. No draws, lost 2 times, both times left a piece in a dominant position. Believe me people, play it, play it. Bb5 is extremely logical. You develop a piece, prepare castling, attack his piece, threaten to damage his pawn structure, and gain a positional plus by exchanging the light square bishop ant place your pawn chain on light squares. What more can you ask from a single move? Look at some Mickey Adams games, he plays it. Also Rublevsky, Vasiukov. You get a stable game, winning chances, positional advantages and in the large tree of the sicilian, when you play Bb5, black has the least counterplay.

Bronstein vs Geller, 1955 
(B31) Sicilian, Rossolimo Variation, 23 moves, 1-0
