1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. e5 Nc6 4. Bb5 Bd7 5. exd6 e6 has been played on master level. Looks nice for black - a gambit from black.   Wink Cheesy

Maybe, but I want to get away from well-known Sicilian lines.

I doubt it's any worse than most other Anti-Sicilians, and I don't think white should be worse. From a black perspective the line zoo gives is obviously equal. White probably does best to turn the position into some sort of Reversed Glek KID earlier on.

The line looks like "just a game".

Still, White has a trap with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.e5 dxe5 4.Nxe5 Nd7 5.Bb5 a6? 6.Qf3! (6.Bxd7 Bxd7 7.Qf3 Be6 followed by Bd5 and ultimately Bxg2) 6...Ngf6 7.Bxd7 Bxd7 Qxb7. For this reason, I would be tempted to play 3...Nc6 and e.g. 4.Bb5 Bd7 5.exd6 e6. Black can't claim more than equality, but equalizing at move 5 in the sicilian is already bad news for White.   


In fact a player with the 3...c5 Advance Caro-Kann in their repertoire could play 3...d5 here, as the best move 4.d4 transposes to 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 4.Nf3. However your recommendation seems much simpler.

@Gambit

This line isn't any good, but there is 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.e5!?, a positional line which is about equal but if Black is unprepared he can easily end up in an unpleasant bind. You'll still need an answer to 3...Nc6 and 3...e5.

Correct, since 4...g6 is asking for a quick attack!

Er, Black can only move one knight to d7; offhand 4...Bf5 seems losing and 4...g6 dubious.

It's nothing.

1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 e5 dxe5 4 Nxe5 N(either)d7 =.  Black is far from forced to take that tack, as well.  4...e6, 4...a6, 4...Qc7, maybe even 4...g6 or 4...Bf5 for those seeking to avoid a quiet life.  White isn't developed enough to threaten anything.

Any ideas about this offbeat Anti-Sicilian line?
