After 2... d5, black is already better.
I suggest you play first 2. Nc3 and 3.f4 to prevent 2...d5. Otherwise, white is the one struggling to equalize.

It was so good I decided to make the GPA my favorite against Sicilian -
Anyone have any ideas about this game or on the GPA?
Originally posted by RamnedThis line is practically forced and can lead to a very wild game. Once I get two games of my game load I'd like to play this line as white against someone. Ideally not a too higher rated player since I'm still learning this thing.
But...chesskid brings up a good point. I think 2...d5 is best for black - what is a good response for white? Nc3!? or exd?
