It is not difficult to understand after 1/ c4 is e5 strongest and most combative and radical Blacks move. After 2/ Nc3 are mainly known moves 2/ .. Bb4 - Shirov Variation 2/ ..d6-Kasparov variation and 2/ .. Nc6 now observed. It is reversed Closed Sicilian and challenging to calculate significance of tempo down and why does White do it ? With 2/ .. Nc6 is Black more concerned with preventing a possible d4 than making a move in the centre of his own d5. If White now playes 3/ Nf3, the reply goes 3/ .. Nf6 and will transpose to the Four Knights Variation. It is about long-term strategic planning. Positional players like this kind of Opening.
