What Sicillian is this? 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5

I've heard the best response to 5....e5 is 6.Ndb5..

But after 6...a6 7.Na3 is forced and I find this a rather ugly position for white.

Could someone please tell me the name of this Sicillian and a typical main line please?


Thanks very much:)

from a quick google search it looks like some sort of dragon variation, though im not sure about 5. ... e5

Hi ;-))
It's Sicilian Defense,Sozin Variation and the best next move after e5 is Bb5+

See you

Isn't it Pelikan? -

I think that usually the Sozin Variation refers to the Fischer-Sozin Attack (1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 d6 6. Bc4). I'm not sure what 5... e5 is called, but 6. Bb5+ intending 7. Nf5 is a good (practically only) response. The Najdorf tries to avoid the Bb5+ problem by playing 5... a6. Ndb5 is played in other situations where ...d6 has not been played yet where white threatens Nd6+, for example 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 e5 6. Ndb5 (Sveshnikov).

Sorry:) Did not notice d6 instead Nc6...

I agree with you, Atrifix I think that the Sicilian described by chris21 is the little sister of both Pelikan/Sveshnikov (B33+) you described, and the L÷wenthal/Kalashnikov (B32 - 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 e5)

Nice thread :)

Transposition Isn't there a simple transposition to Pelikan (orr Sveshnikov) variationa after 6...a6 7.Na3 and 7. Nc6?
I'm not an expert here, so I might be wrong. Transposiotions in Sicilian is a damn tricky thing.

Thanks for all your replys. Chessmaster seems to think its the "Sozin Variation" as noted above. But Atrifix is correct about the sozin attack with Bc4 in the Najdorf.

Thanks again!
