1.e4 c5 2.g3?!
[2.Nc3 is more exact]
[2...d5! actually, if this was an actual tournament game, black may choose this to punish white's improper move order 3.exd5 Qxd5 4.Nf3 Bg4 5.Bg2 Qe6+ 6.Kf1]
3.Bg2 Bg7 4.Nc3 d6 5.d3 Nc6 6.Be3 Rb8!
In my opinion, the best strategy is to commence the counter attack on the Queenside as quickly as possible 7.Qd2 b5 8.Rb1 b4 9.Na4?
The beginning of all sorts of problems [9.Nd1 is correct, but this would put a question as what is the Rook on b1 doing?]
[10.Ne2 Nd4 11.b3 Bxa4 12.bxa4 Nxe2 13.Qxe2 Qa5³; 10.b3 Nd4 11.Nb2 Nf3+!] 10...Ne5! 11.b3 Bxa4 12.bxa4 Nf3+! the most accurate [12...bxc3 13.Qd1™ (13.Rxb8?? cxd2+!) 13...Rxb1 14.Qxb1 Qa5 15.Qb8+! The finesse to prevent any castling possibility 15...Kd7 16.Qb7+ Qc7 17.Qxc7+ Kxc7 18.Ke2 And white, despite a pawn minus is still alive kicking !] 13.Nxf3 Bxc3 and the rest was only moping up process 0–1

1.e4 c5 2.g3 g6 3.Bg2 Bg7 4.Nc3 d6 5.d3 Nc6 6.Be3 Nf6
My original perception about this set piece was that, black has inferior version compare to 6...Rb8. To my surprised, very recently I discovered that this set piece is favoured by Garri Kasparov!!
7.h3! The correct prohylactic move. Not the silly 7.f3? [7.Nge2 is actually possible]
7...e5! It is now very essential to block the center
8.Qd2 0–0 9.Nge2 Nd4 10.0–0 Qa5 11.Bg5 Bxh3!?
A spectacular temporary sacrifice, which however, if correctly reply would only leads to a draw.
12.Nd5?? suddenly white played violently, but this is a bad mistake in calculation [12.Bxh3?? Nf3+ The Royal fork!; 12.Nxd4 exd4 (12...Bxg2?? 13.Nb3! wins a piece) 13.Bxf6! (13.Nd5 Qxd2 14.Nxf6+ Bxf6 15.Bxd2 Bxg2 16.Kxg2³) 13...dxc3 (13...Bxg2 14.Bxg7 Bxf1 15.Bxf8 dxc3 16.Qxc3 Qxc3 17.bxc3 Kxf8 18.Kxf1=) 14.Bxc3 Bxc3 15.bxc3 Bxg2 16.Kxg2=]
12...Qxd2 13.Nxf6+ Bxf6! [13...Kh8 14.Bxd2 Nxe2+ 15.Kh2 Bxg2 16.Nxh7 Bxf1 17.Nxf8 Rxf8 18.Rxf1 Black still a piece up!]
14.Bxd2 Nxe2+ 15.Kh2 Bxg2 16.Kxg2 Here, I asked my opponent to count the pieces... 0–1
