18 Sicilians Bg2
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This is a collection split from the Hungarian Opening transpositions that has not yet been fully edited game-by-game. Early d4 & c4 approaches have/will be removed.

King Pawn games featuring Bg2 fianchettoes (typically before Nf3 is played) are the focus in here. This collection will emphasize Sicilians, but other openings will be included. The ECO code A07 KIA is too often applied to the Sicilian Closed approach w/2.Nc3. True King's Indian Attack games (Nf3 & Nbd2) are in other collections.
