Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-21-09  shakespeare: seems to me a strage opening - this old sicilian. In the database no "modern" reaction ist found after 3.e5 - I think Bb5 would be more then playable - especially because of the d5 hole something like Qc7 is not playable because of Nd5 - so white gets a very quick development and black doubled pawns on the c file if he does not retreat his knight - in which case he would loose the e pawn

in every way - not an opening I would choose as black!
