It is devoted to one of the main lines of the Sicilian Defence, beginning with the moves 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Nc6. Strangely enough, this system has not acquired yet a universally acknowledged name. It is worth mentioning that the scheme, which we recommend against the majority of the other Sicilian variations in our books, the setup Be3, f3 and Qd2 would not work against this system, because of quite concrete reasons. After 6.Be3 Ng4, as well as in case of 6.f3 e5, Black solves his opening problems rather easily. Meanwhile, after the move we recommend 6.Bg5, quite irrevocably accepted by contemporary theory as the most dangerous for Black, there would be no more terminological ambiguities the Rauzer Attack is on the board.
