My friend Russell Goodfellow, was confronted with b3 against the Sicilian, in his last game of the Major tournament.

I was aware that Andrew Martin had produced a video on the line and I managed to find it.

There is a second video.

A few years ago I played in the Gibraltar Challengers and had an opponent who played this as white. 

I had the luxury of knowing this before the game but there was so little information about this line, so I was unable to prepare well enough and I lost the game.

Not sure if there is a name for this white line?

My current Dbase by Chessbase has quite a few games in this line from the years 2015/16.  Looks like it is growing in popularity.

Ecc 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
