Closed Sicilian

The Closed Sicilian is a good line at club level that I used when I was playing 1.e4 as White. Here’s a game I won with it from 2 years ago in which I got a passed d-pawn and then came in on the queenside with the b2-b4 lever. When Black resigned he had not lost any material but his position was hopeless.
