Hi,

That would be Sir Stuart Milner-Barry, the British IM.  You forgot to interpolate 9...Bxc3 10. bc, though.
Rozentalis' and Harley's 2002 book gives this:  10...ef 11. Bxf3 Qa5 (11...Qd7 12. Re1+ Kd8 13. d5 Nce7 14. c4 Nf6 15. Qb3 Re8 16. c5! and White's threats are very dangerous) 12. Re1+ Nge7 13. d5 0-0 14. c4 Rd8 15. Qe2 Nd4 16. Qxe7 Bd7 17. Bh5 g6 18. Rd1 Re8 19. Bd2 and White is better with his extra pawn.  They imply that Black should play 8...Nxd4 instead, which they think should lead to an equal endgame (citing Har-Zvi - Wiersma, Wch under-26 [Rotterdam] 1998).

Ok ,at the moment im working through Murray Chandler's book on the c3 sicillian.In the early e5 system in the 2...d5 variation as given below he touches on an idea by a player called Milner who analysed a move as a forced win and yet gives no analyses.Now im not nit-picking at the book,and in fact i find it quite good,i would just like to know the analysis for this statement.

1.e4,c5
2.c3,d5
3exd5,Qxd5
4.d4,Nc6
5.Nf3,cxd4
6.cxd4,e5
7.Nc3,Bb4
8.Be2,e4
9.0-0!?,exf3
10.Bxf3.

Cheers!
