I think maybe the recent book by Cheparinov has 6.Be3 too, but I'm not sure - haven't seen that one. But Cheparinov is known as a strong theoretical, so it's probably good.

Cheparinov proposes 6.Nge2. And there is also Sabotage the Grunfeld by Kaufman, who mentions both 6.Be3 and 6.Nge2.
Mind you, those books propagate 3.f3 (the "Anti-Grunfeld").

I can't really answer your question since I haven't studied the Sämisch nearly as deeply as I want to... yet. But I have many books on it and have played it quite a bit. I always get interesting games. It's the kind of rich, unbalanced opening I would be happy to play with both White and Black.

Based on my impressions so far these are the sources I would prioritoze:

* The Opening Repertoire book by Eric Montany - for 6.Bg5, which I dabbled in even before that book came out

* The Principled Queen's Gambit Part 2 (Chessable course) by Daniel Barrish - for 6.Nge2

* The Sämisch volume of the King's Indian series by Kotronias - for an extremely in-depth view from the Black side

* The ChessPublishing King's Indian section - for ongoing developments

I haven't been that much into the traditional main line 6.Be3, but there is a decent older repertoire book by Svetushkin (ostensibly on the "Anti-Grünfeld") that covers it. I think maybe the recent book by Cheparinov has 6.Be3 too, but I'm not sure - haven't seen that one. But Cheparinov is known as a strong theoretician, so it's probably good.

I would like to learn more about the Saemisch from White's perspective and wonder where would be a good place to start. What are some good books or other media and who are its biggest proponents at the top level? Also, I am curious to know what you think of it in terms of theoretical reputation.

Many thanks!
