Chess Opening: Grand Prix Attack with 5.a3 [Part 1/2]

This video overviews the 5.a3 variation of the Grand Prix attack in the Sicilian Defense. I learned about this line from an article written by Michael Goeller from the Kenilworth Chess Club website: Basically I don’t have full confidence in it as a full-time weapon against 1…c5 but it makes a nice change of pace line. I have won several games with the ‘delayed Wing Gambit’ 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.f4 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.a3 e6 6.b4!? Many players will take twice on b4 which gives Black a really bad position. But I prefer the defense 6…b6 7.e5 d5. Also the line 5…d6 6.Bc4 is not as great for White as it’s supposed to be. I think I will make another video on this as I sort of rushed to get this one under 11 min.

Two hours ago I got my 100th subscriber. **confetti** Out of gratitude to the first hundred of you I decided to make this video in which I demonstrate my system against the King’s Indian Attack. Enjoy!
