    I am not sure what is the best but I play according to "Openings for Black - Explained" by Alburt Lev and Roman Dzindzihashvili. They recommend black to play 1. ...c5 against 1. c4. That way you can transpose to Maroczy Bind if white plays e4. Panov Attack of Caro-Kann can also be reached and there are some systems where black plays e5.

    This is just one example from the book.

    etc.

    I have beaten a 2100 USCF rated player multiple times, who used to crush me, until I condensed my repertoire. I play the Sicilian dragon against e4, and I started doing thensame against ec4, especially the G3 variation, and I would do great!

    11.0-0 is known to be an inaccuracy in this line. 11.Rc1! is much better, actually theory goes some twenty moves deeper. Sample:

     

    Navara won without having to play a single move of his own in that game!

    Wow, nice!

    26...Rg7 27.Nxf6 Rxg1 28.Ng4+ e5 29.fxe5 checkmate, by en passant!

     

    I haven't worked out what happens after 19...f4 yet.
