Hi all,

Just wondering what do my fellow Grand Prix attack players do against e6 on move two (when white plays e4 and nc3.) Just looking for what options I might have. I really don't want to play the main lines. Then I know I can try f4 or the closed, but any other idears or set up's I can look into?

Thanks.


Something like 3.Nf3 a6 4.g3 combined with 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.Bb5 could be considered - neither are offering anything against a prepared opponent, but there are some tricks and I was surprised by how many good players were getting themselves into trouble in these systems only a couple of years ago. The following two games show how one could try to move order Black into an uncomfortable version of an Open Sicilian.





  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

I think the Bb5 + Qe2 lines should give you a good (yet equal) position. You can probably even get an edge against unexperienced players. There are a lot of people out there that hang their c5 pawn against typical Na4-b3-Ba3 stuff  Cheesy.

In my opinion it's time for White to play a Closed or head back to the Open with 3.Nf3, but then I think that the Grand Prix is just junk all around.  I'm pretty sure that White can equalize in the Closed Sicilian if that's your thing.
