Aggressive Closed Sicilian Grand Prix against a higher-rated player (2241 elo)

Aggressive Closed Sicilian Grand Prix against a higher-rated player (2241 elo)

I just played a pretty cool game against a much higher rated opponent, so I was happy to make some analysis article about it.

This is my best win so far with a low amount of inaccuracies — Lichess stockfish: 1 inaccuracy and 1 mistake and 16 centipawn loss. Chess.com: 96% accuracy.

I’m new to the Closed Sicilian opening played in the game and I was trying it out. It seemed to me from this game that this opening is very flexible and the plan is unclear to the opponent. People are also usually less prepared against it as well so that’s a big plus for me.

I hope you enjoy my analysis and learn something out of it.

I haven’t done too many of these types of articles so let me know what you think about the game and my analysis in the comments below. Thank you!
