Just to mention a few things:

On 6...e5 there is 7. Nde2 with the idea of 7...Be6 8. f4.  That was given as leading to "unclear" in ECO way back in 2002.
6...g6 could transpose to an old Bc4 + short castling line against the Dragon.
6...e6 could, like 6. h3 e6 in the Najdorf, lead to a tempo-up (for Black) version of an old Keres Attack line (in this case 6. g4 Nc6 7. g5 Nd7 8. Be3 Be7 9. h4 0-0) ...I'm guessing it should be equal (slash unclear).

Most Classical Sicilian players play ...e5 lines (except against 6.Bg5 and 6.Bc4), so I assume they'd play 6.h3 e5.


Probably right, although a first glance at the database suggests 6...g6 and 6...e6 are worthy competitors.

Looks not a bad line for White in all cases if he is ready and up for it.

Well its the new main-line against the Najdorf, almost.

What do classical people plan here? Back to the Dragon?
