Taimanov in the aforementioned book calls 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.g3 Bb4 the Smyslov Variation. This seems another contribution to the confusion on naming openings.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

By the same token I think John Watson dubbed it the Smyslov system in his 1979(?) English book (again starting 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 d6 3 d4). But neither name has really stuck.

Taimanov in his 1985 book on the English calls 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 d6 the Tsjigorin System and transposes via 3.Nf3 f5 4.d4 e4 5.Ng5, giving only two games with Be7 6.Nh3; Portisch-Larsen, m 1977, continued c5 and Uhlmann-Tsjesjkovsky, Leipzig 1975 saw Nf6.

Opening name?

I've been finding the opening lines in Yrola & Tella's Explosive Opening Repertoire for Black rather intriguing, but was wondering if anyone could give a name to their primary defense against 1 d4 and 2 c4?

1 d4 d6 2 c4 e5 3 Nf3 e4 4 Ng5 f5 5 Nc3 Be7 6 Nh3 c6 ...

The ECO code is A21.  Does this have a name?
