Combating 2. c3, the Closed, the Morra Gambit and Other Tricky Ideas Catalog Code: B0157EMThe Sicilian Defence is by far Black's most popular answer to 1. e4 at all levels of chess.

This is particularly the case with the Open Sicilian, where Black can take comfort from the knowledge that his superior pawn structure ensures control of the centre and excellent long-term chances.
