1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Lc5 5.Le3 Qb6 6.Nb5!?

I don't know what I should play against 4...Lc5 but I thought perhaps I should give 6.Nb5!? a try. I think it's better than 6.Nc3 Nc6 and then Nb5. Opinions and recommendations? Thx in advance!


I think Srdjan Sale wrote a Yearbook survey on this variation in Yearbook 73. He considers 5.Nb3 to be more testing, although I am not certain if he gives 5.Be3 Qb6 6.Nb5.
