Opening Data Base                                                                                                       Home Page



Richter Rauser is probably White's best choice against the Classical Sicilian.

White with 6.Bg5 threatens to take the f6 Knight, doubling Black's pawns.  If Black answers with 6 .. e6, White continues with the plan based on Qd2 and 000, with pressure over Black's d6 pawn and the possibility to launch a pawn attack on the kingside.
