Sicilian English Attack Win Raja

The Sicilian Defence English Attack 6.Be3 leads to wonderful attacks where White castles queenside and pushes pawns to f3, g4 and h4. Raja Harshit took a different approach vs Gabriela Antova. He avoided 7.f3 and played 7.g4, 8.Bg2, and 10.h4.

[My Main Line 1...c5 Playbook covers the Sicilian Defence Najdorf and the King's Indian Defence both for Black.]
