It is no secret that Sicilian Defense is the single strongest response against 1.e4.
In fact, Sicilian is so strong, that many players switched to 1.d4 altogether.
If you are looking for an opening to combat 1.e4, and looking for more than just equality… the choice is clear.
However, playing mainstream the Sicilians has its cons.
All players are well prepared against things like Najdorf, Classical Sicilian, or Dragon with white pieces.
And if you’re looking for an under-the-radar Sicilian with a great winning percentage, far less theory, clear & straightforward plans… GM Marian Petrov recommends his favorite Sveshnikov Sicilian!
