Yeah, I was thinking about 2...e6 3...cxb4, sorry for the mix up.

Another potential reason I guess is 2...Nc6 3.b4 Nxb4, which doesn't seem to be so bad and can transpose into a french wing gambit.


I noticed that 2...Nc6 3. b4 came up in the latest Anti-Sicilians update.  3...Nxb4 wouldn't generally transpose to a French Wing Gambit as far as I know ...

I guess 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 is quite unpleasant for the wing-gambiteer because of 3.b4 Nf6 which immediatley attacks the e4-pawn.
Could be wrong though, wing gambit players will tell. Wink

What is the point of playing 2.b4 rather than 2.Nf3 and 3.b4? 2.b4 allows this d5 stuff. The only thing that I can think of that 2.b4 avoids is 2...g6. Is there something else?
