Any thoughts on this variation?
Quite playable, IMO.
Interesting White can play 3.e5 in the next move.
A new series came out on ICC on this line. There was an older one covering the interesting gambit line after 3.e5:
I was thinking of using it to avoid the 3.Bb5 rossolimo, if 3.nc3 i just transpose back to sveshnikov lines. seems to have much independent merit though.
