Moves : a6 d6 Nc6 e5 (back)
This is an attempt to trick Black into playing 3..e5 (4.Nxe5 Qa5+ -+), White responds with 4.c3 and after 4..dxc3 will have reached a good variation of the Morra gambit.
An interesting try for Black is 3..a6, and if White plays 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5! reaches a variation of the O'kelly Sicilian that is considered not bad for Black, and he has avoided White's most promising lines.
1.e4 c5 2.Nf6 a6 (O'kelly) and now both 3.c3 and 3.c4 are generally considered more testing against this line.
