Yes indeed he does! Sorry, sloppy reading on my part... Embarrassed

Didn't Ilic write a book about the Qb6 line some years ago? Was that with 2...e6 or 2...Nc6 or both?

Doesn't black play 2...e6 in the Gaw-paw?
  

Don't check me with no lightweight stuff.

I've never heard about the Grivas Sicilian before either! But ...Qb6 I've seen many times... Maybe he transposes to the Gaw Paw (aka GåPå varianten) with 5.Nc3 Nf6  Roll Eyes

Grivas Sicilian

Gambit is releasing a book on the Grivias sicilian in August. http://www.badbishop.com/gambit/books/grivas.html It's 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Db6. I didn't even know it was called the Grivas Sicilian. The book is written by Grivas himself.

What's the status of this line? (Well, reading the book is one way to find out.) Looking briefly in games from TWIC it appears to do well. I seldom see it at high level though.

Is it always an independent line? Are there common transpositions to other Sicilian lines?
