I'd be wary of playing this line against a prepared 2.c3 player as I think White is doing quite well there now.

For example after 11.Bd2 exd5 12.0-0 d4 13.Nb5 Bb4 14.Bxb4 Qxb4 and now 15.Nfxd4! isn't covered but is very strong.

Dave Smerdon's last few updates are worth seeing for good ways of handling the black side of 2 c3, particularly the December one.


Can we have a link for it sir ??

Instead of d6..I would prefer nf6 but I have heard that it leads to boring positions for both players...But it might be off topic  Wink

I just wish he had not skipped covering the Rossolimo, I am still looking for a nice repertoire idea there that is nicely covered and explained by someone. Perhaps TonyRo's Killer Sicilian book will bail me out...


Have you seen Experts vs. the Anti-Sicilians?  I've always liked the no-nonsense 3...d6 and I know it's covered in that book, though I don't have the book myself.  It seems more fun for Black than the 3...g6 or 3...e6 lines, though of course a little riskier.

I'm not aware of any huge holes (other than his secondary anti-Morra line - the one with b5-b4 and grabbing a pawn on e4), but his anti-c3 line was just never my style, so I do not know about that one. Most of the rest seems as sensible as ever - the good thing is that most of the lines are not crazy sharp stuff... I just wish he had not skipped covering the Rossolimo, I am still looking for a nice repertoire idea there that is nicely covered and explained by someone. Perhaps TonyRo's Killer Sicilian book will bail me out...

Are Palliser's repertoire books still ok to use for club players wanting to build an anti sicilian repertoire?  or are there noticeable holes in some of the lines now making other sources preferable?

In that position, the gambit 10.d5! exd5 11.Nd4 Bxe2 12.Qxe2+ Be7 13.Nxc6 bxc6 14.0-0 scores very well for white. It may be holdable, but I switched to 8...Bb4 to avoid it.

I think that this line (...d5, ...Nc6, ...Bg4) isn't that popular at top level because 2.c3 isn't that popular at top level, and 2...Nf6 is.

I think Vladimir Georgiev played this line a lot.
