    I black instead of 4. ... c6 simply castles (which was the case in my game) 5. e3 does not look that good.

    Why do you think it doesn't look good?


    It is the main response to that position for a reason. It brings in attacking ideas with a future possible d4. It allows Nge2 to further promote the possible d4 while not blocking the bishop and allowing castling.

    5.ed5 Nxd5 6.Nc3?! Nb4 and I can already smell a wandering king (unless you play something like 7.Be4 and swap your light-squared bishop for a knight at no positional gain at all).

    6.a3 must be better, but in this strange reversed Kan Sicilian the bishop is very well placed on c5.

    Fair enough, good points. Maybe I'll spend some time looking at 4. e3 d5 and see what a good response is, it seems like it shouldn't be a problem for white.
