OK, my FB friends tell me it's

2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 g6 (with the Knight going to h6 is the current mainline).

Thoughts?

Just wondering, what is given anti-Moscow?
Not to give the whole line (respect, copyright), but the general idea.
3...Bd7 fades to a staid, bits-off equality if white wishes, not an obvious 'club' choice.
3...Nc6 on for action I'd guess.

1. e4 c5
2. Nf3 d6
3. Bb5+ ....

Thanks!

EDIT
Found it myself:

3. ...Bd7
4. Bd7 Nd7



What about 2. ...Nc6 3.Bb5 ..???

Does he cover 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cd 4.Qxd4 and 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.f3?

He covers 5. f3 in a "60 minutes" video.

I would also be interested to know what he recommends after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5. More generally, it's annoying that ChessBase don't publish basic contents such as this - their products are too expensive to buy on the off-chance that you will like the coverage.


Completely right. How anybody can buy these DVD's when they are tied to the Chessbase program and so expensive I cannot understand.

If they want to make DVDs that are not playable on a standard TV then let them charge accordingly.

I was disappointed by his recommendation against the 2.c3 Sicilian. 1.e4 c5 2.c3 d5 3.cxd5 Nf6 a rare gambit line, Houdini wasn't impressed by his variations where White holds onto the pawn with Qa4+.

Does he really go for this againstm 2. C3  , if so I won't bother with this DVD.  Thanks for the warning, it is a shame I was hoping this DVD. Wouldmb,useful.

Yes, I totally agree.

Does he cover what Ftacnik called "Fight Club Various", that is 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 :
            3.Bc4 Nf6 4.d3
            3.c3 Nf6 4.Be2
            3.c3 Nf6 4.Bd3
            3.c3 Nf6 4.h3

Reminds me of Sveshnikov, some time ago, giving 4. Qa4+ as leading to ±.
