Are you "hi there" or "hit here?" LOL.

Actually, it's not too far removed from the normal Dragon Variation, except that Black's Queen's Knight gets off to a late start. ...Nc6 would normally be played somewhere between moves 5 - 9, but the game as played worked out very well. Besides, one can't really argue against success.

6.Bg5 is whites most popular continuation.After 6...e6 7.f4 Be7 8.Qd2 a6 9.0-0-0 h6 10.Bh4 0-0 we have a Rauzer type formation.See Arakhamia/Kupreichik, Mariehamm 1997. After 6.Bg5 e6 7.Qd2 a6 8.f4 h6 9.Bf6 Qf6 10.0-0-0 Nc6 11.Nf3 0-0-0 once again white strives for a Rauzer Attacking formation. see Psakhis/Kupreichik, Lenk 1991.Most interesting however is when white tries to punish black for not having played .. a6 prior to .. Bd7. After 6.Bg5 e6 7.Ndb5 Bc6 8.Bf6 gf6 9.Qh5 a6 see Spasov/Kupreichik, Moscow olympiad 1994.Kupreichik won that game however.

Bg5 is definitley the best move. It reduces Blacks options & the kingside fianchetto is taboo, as after; 6...g6 7.Bxf6 exf6 White has lasting pressure against the very weak d6 square & a fantastic outpost on d5.

The move 5...Bd7!? is called the "Kupreichik System" and is discussed in Secrets of Opening Surprises vol. 1 chapter 18.Your followup after 6.Be2 g6 7.00 Bg7 was also played in Rublevsky/Kupreichik, Aalborg 1993.There however white continued 8.Bg5.Also possible would have been after 6.Be2 Bc6!? but most common is 6...e5 7.Ndb5 taking us into Sveshnikov territory, then 7...Bc6 will definitely take your opponent away from any home prepared analysis.Excellent play, and good luck.

Although theory isn't my forte, I believe this was a traditional Sicilian, although I have no idea what variation. Playing black, I got a fairly quick win, so I thought I'd post it here. Any comments will be helpful....
