King's indian atack
I want to ask which is the best defense to King's indian attack.
Is  the c5-d6-e5 formation with Nge7 and g6- Bg7 a good choice?

As a Najdorf player how should one tackle the Grand Priz and the closed??  If I play an early d6 then Grand Priz is good.  If I play a6 then I think a6 is a pointless move in the closed.<...

2b3 a rating
Hi all,
How does 2.b3 rate as far as a Anti-Sicilian?  Meaning is it better than Grand priz attack or the c3 sicilian??  Any thoughts would be appreciated!!

2...g6 for players of Bb5 systems
For those who play Bb5 systems, what is a good answer to
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 g6 ?
Let's assume White doesn't want to enter the main lines of the Accelerated Dragon.
Would 3.c3 work?
