Jul-20-08  mollyboo: Very clever. I don't play the sicilian very well, with either colour - are there any golden rules I need to know about above and beyond basic opening principles? Links to instructive games would be nice if anyone can take the time.
Jul-20-08  pawn to QB4: As for golden rules in the Sicilian, as a 2100 player I'll attempt a reply in a day or so if still needed, but with a bit of luck by then a proper player will have answered your query for both of us.Instructive games is the easy part. I'm taking up the King's Indian and went to our Game Collections. Use the search facility and you'll get dozens of collections of Sicilian games: this for instance: Game Collection: Bobby Fischer with white {sicilian}.
Jul-20-08  mollyboo: Thanks QB4, I'll look forward to whatever you can put my way. Fischer does seem a decent place to start though...
