Rossolimo 3...g6 4. Bxc6 bxc6 5. d4!?
I was thinking about switching back to playing ...Nc6 sicilians recently and am searching for a reliable response to the Rossolimo. I'm leaning toward 3...g6 for now, with the idea of meeting Bxc6 wit...

3.Bb5 Nd7 Moscow Modern Main Line

e6!? In the 5. c4 Moscow line
I like playing the Moscow, but nearly everyone I play is playing a set-up with e6 after 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. Bb5 Bd7 4. Bxd7 Qxd7 5. c4. I'm not able to find even a slight edge for White after Black ...

I'm lifelong French player, who started playing the Kalashnikov (and loving it!), partly inspired by this forum.
My problem is 3.Bb5 though. Do I really have to play 3...g6, as Rogozenko...

What to do against the Rossolimo 3.Bb5
After 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 I've been playing Bg7. However, after Bxc6 and dxc6, I've been playing the set up with pawn on e5 and re-organize my position. I haven't had the best luck with this. I...

1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nd4 4.Bc4 ... a6!?
I played Vigorito's suggested 4...a6, not really knowing this variation. The first 10 moves ended with the same position as that in the e-book line.
I managed to draw with my 200+ graded opponen...

Problem with the Rossolimo
I really don't understand why everybody (Jones, Bologan, Van Wely...) today suggest playing following line:

Sources on 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. Bb5+ Nc6
I play sicilian najdorf, and sometimes acc.dragon. Rossolimo and Moscow variations are tons of theory. I'm looking for a simple solution to avoid theory for Rossolimo and Moscow. Is there any good sou...

Has anyone got this book yet ? I've been waiting for it since the dvd came out and I'm still waiting thanks to delays at BookDepository.com. I've seen the book when I recently got a chance to call in ...

1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.Bb5
Is this line better than playing the Grand Prix attack vs 2...Nc6?? is this as good as 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5?

Transposition into Rossolimo after e6?
Recently I have had the following line played against me:
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 e6 4.b3 with interesting play.
This can also occur after:
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.b3 Nc6 4.Bb5

Best material against 3. Bb5 (+)
I'm searching some material against 3.Bb5 (+). Since I'm planning to play the classical, it doesn't matter if it's for 2...d6 or 2...Nc6.
I've the Rogozenko, but I find the lines he give...
