Verifying The Sharpest Sicilian 2012

Georgiev and Kolev give some analysis of the following line in the Sharpest Sicilian 2012(Chess Stars 2012).

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.f4 e5 7.Nf3 Nbd7 8.a4 Be7 9.Bd3 0–0 10.0–0 exf4 11.Bxf4 Qb6+ 12.Kh1 Qxb2 13.Nd5 Nxd5 14.exd5


14...Qb6 Too passive.[Georgiev/Kolev]
14...Nc5 is the Georgiev/Kolev repertoire.

Here is a game featuring 14...Nc5 from the 2009 World Cup featuring Gashimov,V and Li Chao.
