Yes I can but it was an acknowledgement  to TN. Kiss
  

What kind of proof is that?

Play a main line Alapin repertoire via a. 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 move order:
...
b) 2...Nc6 3.c3 d5 4.ed5 Qd5 5.Nf3 Bg4 6.dc5
c) 2...Nc6 3.c3 d5 4.ed5 Qd5 5.Nf3 Nf6 6.Be2
...


A very nice start of a repertoire and very generous of TN.

But isn't 5.Nf3 a typo? (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 move order)


Based on the fact that 6. dxc5, you can guess the replacement move.  Grin

Something troubles me about the initial post. Has this Zatara guy studied any lines of the c3 sicilian? Which lines liquidate all the pieces? I play the c3 sicilian and I know of no such lines.

Ok, maybe you had to look to the others openings you play against with white. If you play 2.c3 I think you like playing IQP, or the French advance or some special lines vs the Alekhine, for exemple. Now, perhaps, you have more questions than answers  Wink

HI,
WIth work and other commitments I think Open is too much, hopefully I am wrong.  I was wondering which would be a theoretically better repertoire:
1. Main line 2.c3 systems.  or
2. 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3
-vs 2...d6 then Nc3 Nf6 and e5
-vs 2...Mc6 then 3.Bb5 and main lines
-vs 2....e6 play 3.g3
-vs 2...a6 3.c3
-vs 2....g6 3.c3

I think 2. keeps more pieces on the board, which is better than fewer pieces when the position is =. 
Thanks for your time,
Zatara


Play a main line Alapin repertoire via a. 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 move order:

a) 2...Nc6 3.c3 Nf6 4.e5 Nd5 5.Bc4 Nb6 6.Bb3 d5 7.ed6 Qd6 8.d4 cd4 9.Na3

b) 2...Nc6 3.c3 d5 4.ed5 Qd5 5.Nf3 Bg4 6.dc5

c) 2...Nc6 3.c3 d5 4.ed5 Qd5 5.Nf3 Nf6 6.Be2

d) 2...e6 3.c3 d5 4.e5 Nc6 5.d4 and 6.a3

e) 2...e6 3.c3 d5 4.e5 d4 5.cd4 cd4 6.Bb5

f) 2...e6 3.c3 Nf6 4.e5 Nd5 5.d4 cd4 6.cd4 d6 7.Bc4

g) 2...e6 3.c3 Nf6 4.e5 Nd5 5.d4 cd4 6.cd4 b6 7.Nc3

h) 2...d6 3.d4 cd4 4.Nd4 Nf6 5.f3 (if 3.c3, 3...Nf6 4.Be2 g6 5.0-0 Bg7)

It will be easier for you to make the transition to the Open Sicilian with this repertoire than with the other two repertoires as in this repertoire you are already playing Maroczy Bind positions in the Prins Variation.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

Don't forget to check the popularity of 3.Bb5 either and compare it with say 6.g3 in the Open Sicilian.

A mixture of KIA (when e6) and Bb5 variations fits well if you know why you play your specific response. Nothing against adding c3 later.  Smiley

You should check in your database how popular 2.c3 is - much more popular than a low profile Open Sicilian repertoire.
