Stub articles[edit]

We do not need more articles for US 93 - there is too little information at this point. --Rschen7754 (T C) 21:19, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Split-outs from the Sicilian Defense[edit]

Hi! I saw you had split out parts of the Sicilian Defense article into separate articles. Unfortunately, I have decided to revert those changes, because the split-outs were detrimental to readability. Generally, the summary style guideline recommends splitting out long sections, but at the time, these sections are not long. Even after a section is split out, it should leave behind a summary at the main article. A separate article also needs to provide context for someone who has not seen the main article, and that was not quite done in this article. To illustrate this, the entire content at Sicilian, Richter-Rauzer was

The move 6.Bg5 was Kurt Richter's invention, threatening to double Black's pawns after Bxf6. After Black plays 6...e6, Vsevolod Rauzer introduced the modern plan of Qd2 and 0-0-0. White's pressure on the d6-pawn often compels Black to respond to Bxf6 with ...gxf6, rather than recapturing with a piece (e.g. the queen on d8) that also has to defend the d-pawn. This weakens his kingside pawn structure, but in return, Black enjoys a useful majority of pawns in the centre.

It is not at all clear from the content here in what position 6.Bg5 is played, what the significance of this is, or even that chess is the game we are talking about. The likely response from a person who winds up at this article without having seen the main article on the Sicilian is probably confusion.

On one point, I will agree with you however. These variations of the Sicilian are notable enough for separate articles if someone is willing to put the time and effort into writing substantive (beyond the stub level) articles for them. These variations are covered in several books, and there should be enough material for a separate article. Until someone writes them however, we are probably better off not splitting the variations out prematurely.

Thanks for your efforts! Sjakkalle (Check!) 15:49, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
