wobbly is on a distinguished road
Does anyone know much about the Sicilian Chekhover variation or have a good link to the theory? I recently started playing this & I know what to do in the main-line (4. Qxd4 Nc6) but not how to handle 4. ...a6. So I won this game at the club, but not because I felt I played well, more like I butchered the opening & was losing but won anyway. Somehow I managed to get all my pieces tangled up & had to scramble awkwardly to fix things.
