As you may know Claus Jensen has been posting Youtube videos with his analysis of the 6. h3 response by White to the Sicilian Defense Najdorf variation. Here is one of his videos.

I did some engine analysis on this move and a few other alternatives and my work is supportive of Claus. It shows the strength of 6. h3 very clearly although there is little to separate 6. h3 from 6. f3 or 6. Be3. Here is a link to my data.
