    Thanks for this video, GM Gregory Kaidanov, it was quite enlightening. Now I will watch part 2 which I hope will be as good as part 1.

    at 23:11; blacks e5 is bad because of Re1? Ah, yes; I forgot about the finochetto bishop.

    In the intro when I heard 1.e4 I almost stopped the video, but then I carried on... because I always like your lectures... and because I play Sicilian's against 1.e4 I thought I can invert the lesson in my favour and see what white's plans are and how black can stop them, and I now know what I need to look out for Wink

    Like I said, I almost stopped it when I heard 1.e4 but not only was I in need of a little Sicilian refresher, I got an amazing cagalogue of great analytical info that I can now use. Top lecture! Cool

    Hey, why did you say smith-morra was bad. Dzidzi said that the Smith-Morra gambit is a legit opening and that black only equalizes with perfect play. White always has sufficient compensation for the pawn. I don't know where you get your information but I know one thing: Dzidzi's word is law.

    @modonohue and others -- I'm pretty sure Gregory said he would be reviewing other lines (like your 2...d5 request) of the Alapin in future videos. 

    Thanks all!

    Nice game.

    Thank you for a very lucid discussion of the ideas involved in this variation of the Alapin.  I used to play the c3 Sicilian but never considered the g3 line.  I look forward to future insights.

    Excellent lecture GM Kaidanov.  Keep them coming!  A very interesting, and under-utilized, opening tool.
