Black steps into it at 6...g6. Better is either 6...e6 or 6...Qb6. In this game he seals his doom with 8...dxe6; relatively "best" at this point is either 8...Ng4 or 8...d5.

Apr-23-19  dumbgai: Black seems confused about which Sicilian he wants to play. He starts out with the classical but the next move decides he wants to play a dragon instead.
