First steps in learning this opening for me is to look at a few master games where ideas that I feel I may come up against are played. I will list a good amount of games and make some notes in my head or on the pgn with a # to denote frequent plans, or piece placement or tactics by white or black. Finally each game will be focused on a moment in the game where a tactic was played to finish off the game or on moves that were interesting to me etc.

At the end is a blitz game I played shortly after looking at these games happy.png

I only found one game where the bishop took on c3 and it was an early draw with c5 immediately after Bxc3.
Here is a quick couple lines I looked at with a computer:
