Jul-31-05  farrooj: this is very instructive. see how the a4 pawn and the rook prevent the3 black king of advancing. But can't crafty make any progress?
Jul-31-05  Greatful Fred: this looks like a great opening for white to use if you are playing a stronger player, and want to escape with the half point, especially against a Sicillian specialist.
Jul-31-05  farrooj: another nice sicilian is d4, cxd4 Qxd4

  beatgiant: Instead of 45. g4, I believe the right plan must be 45. f4 d5 46. Kf3, using the king to hold the d-pawn. In that case, Black looks in trouble because of the passive position of his pieces.

Aug-14-05  aw1988: Since it was indeed crafty playing, why don't we call upon it to answer the question?
