1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. g3 g6 4. Bg2 Bg7 5. d3 d6 6. f4 e5 7. Nh3 Nge7 8. O-O Nd4 9. f5 gxf5  10. Qh5 h6 11. Rf2 Be6 12. Be3 Qd7 13. Raf1 Rf8 (instead of 13...0-0-0) 14. Nd5 f4 is a line given in a book by a certain forum member here at Chesspub. Are there any known improvements for White here?

I have now seen that these last fourteen years are still in force on this anti-Sicilian road and have been incorporated by some GM positional style GM Granda Zuñiga and GM Moskalenko, but the still strong tactical style of GM Nigel Short plays it Both through time. It is not preposterous to be able to discover in the database that of the ancient players and chess gold seekers became energetic in positions of high strategic content such as Smylov and Chigorin who passed through 6.Nh3!
Note: search 1-0 (59) Chigorin, M-Bird, H Vienna 1882
In correspondence chess where we must try to avoid positions in which the engines solve the complications easily, it is still an excellent alternative to explore this type of positions somewhat closed and almost without change of pieces in early phases.
For my part I have been playing both in OTB and in correspondence in more than 50 games and hundreds of online blitz game.
In 2014 I was able to tie in a first round tournament with a GM who had 600 points more than me in the ELO rating and was able to see the value of my home preparation as well as the immense space for future improvement.
Here I leave the link in case anyone wants to see the details of this game.



My best regards to all. Smiley

By the way the game the original poster mentioned has finished with a draw:

1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.g3 g6 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.d3 d6 6.Nh3!? e6 7.0-0 Qd7 8.Be3 b6 9.Qd2 Bb7 10.Rae1 h6
11.f4 Nf6 12.Nf2 0-0 I found this variation of your analysis very interesting for both sides. Black has to be very precise and original (Qd7,b6, h6 !?) if he wants to avoid a very dangerous attack with f4,f5. we can go on by 13.f5!? Kh7 "unclear". But after 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.g3 g6 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.d3 d6 6.Nh3 e6 7.0-0 Nge7 8.Be3 0-0 9.Qd2 Nd4 the game seems equal and less exciting.

There is a chapter about this line.

Ah, well, I recently played a game in this variation as black in an important league game, which went 
1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. g3 g6 4. Bg2 Bg7 5. d3 d6 6. Nh3 e6 7. O-O Nge7 8. Be3
O-O 9. Qd2 Rb8 10. Bh6 b5 11. Bxg7 Kxg7 12. Rae1 b4 13. Nd1 Qb6 14. Ne3 Nd4 15.
c3 bxc3 16. bxc3 Ndc6 17. Ng4 Ng8 18. Rb1 Qxb1 19. Rxb1 Rxb1+ 20. Bf1 e5 21. f3
Bxg4 22. fxg4 Rfb8 23. Qc2 R8b2 24. Qa4 Nge7 25. Qc4 Ra1 26. Ng5 Nd8 27. Nf3
Rbb1 28. Nd2 Rd1 0-1

Obviously 18.Rb1?? just looses the game (not that I objected at the time, but obviously white had better options). Out of interest I searched the archives of the forum I found just about nothing about this variation.

I guess there's bound to be some discussion of this in Palliser's book on the Closed Sicilian (which I don't have, although I will probably be looking into getting his book on playing black against the Anti-Sicilians).

Obviously I'd be interested to se what the various authors have to say (I do not own any book covering this variation) or what the forum members have to say.

It is just true that some of the old lines have been forgotten by the new generation of players. I will take a closer look at some of the possibilities in the April update. I modestly can reveal that I wrote a chapter on the suject in my book 'The Ultimate Closed Sicilian' published by Batsford in 2001.

Chessfriends:

I wish to show the following  analysis (indeed not own !) because I wish feedback about the effectiveness
of an interesting line of the closed sicilian:

1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.g3 g6 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.d3 d6 6.Nh3!

Here the theory have a few forgotten this last move and all the effort are concentrated at 6.f4 , 6.Nge2 or 6.Be3 variations !!


Analysis of my correspondence chessfriend Bulgarini, Marco:

1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.g3 g6 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.d3 d6
