Tomas Bragesjös Sicilian games


I play Open Sicilian with white and sometimes plays Taimanov Sicilian with black. I play Reversed Sicilian with black since the extra tempo is irrelevent if black follows up correctly.

I play Open Sicilian since I played it for many years so I know how to handle that type of positions and also since in my experience with the black pieces the Open Sicilian is very rare at club level since anti sicilians like Closed Sicilian, c3 Sicilian , Grand Prix, Morra Gambit, KIA, Bb5(+) etc etc are more common to meet. Also club players rarely knows theory on Open Sicilian systems not common at elite level like Be2 or g3 systems or other more positional mainlines.
