Non-delayed wing gambit?
What is the point of playing 2.b4 rather than 2.Nf3 and 3.b4? 2.b4 allows this d5 stuff. The only thing that I can think of that 2.b4 avoids is 2...g6. Is there something else?

This is especially important because THE main Anti-Sicilian line (3 Bb5) just doesn't work against 2...e6, so you'll see a lot of 3 c3.
