do you know this sicilian...

in one of my games i play with the blacks and after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 i played 4... e6 so e6!? or e6?! what do you opponent played after that 5.e5 Nd5 6.Ne4 Qc7 7.f4 Bb7 8.c4 Bb4+ 9.Ke2...and what do you think about the position...thanx a lot for all..:)

Scheveningen Sicilian

I'll have a look at the position. 4. ...e6 is simply correct and a well known variation : Scheveningen Sicilian. 5.e5 ? is quite bad IMO :)

There must be an error in annotation

after e5 Nd5, wasnt your knight at c6? Ne4? the white knight is in d4 please review your annotation

Khaled Toutaoui    (2007-03-10 12:30:03)
yes sorry...oops...

oh sorry sir i forgot a move the complete annotation is...1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e6 6.Nxc6 bxc6 7.e5 Nd5 8.Ne4 Qc7 9.f4 Bb7 10.c4 Bb4+ 11.Ke2...but i think that in the Scheveningen play 2.d6 before e6 so that the Knight in f6 is protected from the attack e4-e5...i think that 4...e6 here in these case is really ?! or ?...what do you think...

Thibault de Vassal    (2007-03-10 16:49:12)
5. ...e6

You mean 5. ...e6 right ?

.. well that's a common move, simply not bad so without any annotation.

This is called the 4 knights sicilian

This line is a very complicated line of play. You could play the scheveningen with e6 as your second move,the difference is you chose as your second move Nc6 that allows this line of play. So e6 is a perfect line of play neither good nor bad. Just for your tastes :)

4 Knights Scilian

Alex Raetsky has a book published by Everyman called "Meeting 1.e4". He recommends the 4 Knights and also covers the other methods white employs to avoid the semi-open scilians after 1...c5 Such as the 2.c3 and 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 variations and also the closed systems. It is a "workable" repertoire book. ps I am not on commmission.
