    @ Meff

    Don't act like such a blowhard, especially considering that your playing stats don't appear to be much better than mine. Why bother to quibble over moves at depth 16 and beyond when, given your playing stats, you most likely won't reach theory move 16 (or beyond) except possibly in correespondence anyway?

    1.e4 c5 2.c3 Nf6 3.e5 Nd5 4.d4 cxd4 5.Nf3 d6 6.cxd4 Nc6 7.Bc4 Nb6 8.Bb5 dxe5 9.Nxe5 Bd7 10.Nxd7 Qxd7 11.Nc3 e6 12.0–0 Be7 13.Qg4 0–0 14.Bxc6 bxc6 15.Bh6 Bf6 16.Rad1 Kh8 
     
    You say that more popular for white to take with queen on move 14 but according to the database taking with bxc6 is alot more common. 16.Rfd1 is more normal. Instead of 17.Bf4 or 17.Bg5, it is more common that white plays 17.Ne4
     
    Also, at 10:21 you talk about the moves 18...Nd5 18...Bxg5 and finally 18...Bd4. However, you did not even mention move 18...Bd8 which according to engine is blacks best defence for this position. In any event, it is an inaccuracy for black to play Kh8 on move 16. Instead he should try and get his queen to the e7 square.
     
    At 10:39 you have the moves
     
    1.e4 c5 2.c3 Nf6 3.e5 Nd5 4.d4 cxd4 5.Nf3 d6 6.cxd4 Nc6 7.Bc4 Nb6 8.Bb5 dxe5 9.Nxe5 Bd7 10.Nxd7 Qxd7 11.Nc3 e6 12.0–0 Be7 13.Qg4 0–0 14.Bxc6 Qxc6 15.Bh6 Bf6 16.Rfd1 Kh8 17.Ne4 Rg8 18.Bg5 Bxg5 19.Nxg5 Qd7
     
    here you suggest 20.Nxh7 but it is more stronger move for white to play 17.Qh5 in this position.

    2.c3 Sicilian has never appealed to me but this was a very good lecture on somerthing I don't know much about. It's always handy to know white's plans so I know what I can play as black to counter!

    @ BogatyrSvyatogor: Quite a few (books, videos, e-books), but Sveshnikov's book is the best, by a big margin.

    Why no coverage at all of Black's main current reply, 2...Nf6 3.e5 Nd5 4.d4 cd4 5.cd4 d6 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Bc4 de5?

    Also there's nothing about another highly topical line- mainly Black playing ...d6 and ...e6 before committing the b8 knight.

    Will the be covered in another video, or they are refuted somehow?
