What is the current state of the schevshnikov?
Is the schveshnikov still playable? Why has it disappeared from top level practice?  Is there a line that gives black a impossible defensive task?

Hi All

Sveshnikov vs Kalashnikov
The Najdorf isn't the only Sicilian where Black gets in an early e5. There's also the Kalashnikov and Sveshnikov.
The K goes like this:
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 e5 5.Nb5 d6
