Typical lines in the Sicillian Defence, Andersson? I played a freindly game at my club the other night that went...

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6

Am I right in thinking this is the Andersson Variation of the sicillian?

I played 5. Nc3... and got in a right mess after 5...Bb4 6. Bg5?! Qa5!

Does anyone know any typical lines in this variation?

Thanks.

B33: Sicilian Defense: Scheveningen Variation

Common response is 5. Nc3 Nc6 (or 5. ... d6). I can try to go into more depth at a later time, but this is what I can supply you for now.

I have no idea what you want to call this. I have never seen it referred to as the Andersson Variation. Honestly, the specific names of openings don't really matter all that much unless you're writing a doctoral thesis on the history of chess. Just write down something--if you want a more formal designation, use the ECO codes.

After 5. Nc3 Bb4, I think the main move is 6. Ndb5 (6... Nc6 then transposes to Sicilian Four Knights). 6. Bg5 isn't bad, as long as after 6... Qa5 (better is 6... 0-0) White plays 7. Bd2.
