Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-13-04  tacticsjokerxxx: the o'kelly sicilian is mostly transpositional, unless 4.-e5 or 5.-e5 is played hindering white's usual Nb5.
Jan-11-09  sfm: 13.-,g5! is the kind of move that is usually dubious. Here it works.
Dec-17-09  sezori: Wonder if this guy, "Alberic O'Kelly de Galway" is the originator of the O'Kelly, Sicilian? Would be interesting, even though I've never heard of him...
Dec-17-09  Alphastar: <sezori> Yes, he is.
Mar-07-18  schnarre: ...Never really been a fan of the O'Kelly variation. I usually played 4...e6, occasionally 4...e5, but never got very far with it.
