Default is this a known/played opening or did I do something "unique"?

Is this a known/played opening or did I do something "unique"?

If Bobby Fischer is right then this is "already played out"

It starts out like French but then Sicilian

In response to this unusual order I did what I did below:


[Event "None"]
[Site "Florida"]
[Date "2004.08.28"]
[Round "1"]
[White "Florida Chess"]
[Black "Fritz 8"]
[TimeControl "600"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[Annotator "Florida Chess"]
[ECO "B40"]

1.e4 e6 2.Nf3 c5 3.c3 d5 4.e5 d4 5.cxd4 cxd4 6.b3 Nc6 7.Bb2 Nge7 8.Bb5
a6 9.Bxc6+ Nxc6 10.O-O b6 11.d3 Bb7 12.Nbd2 Qd5 13.Nc4 Bc5 14.Re1 O-O
15.Ba3 Bxa3 16.Nxa3 b5 17.Rc1 Rac8 18.Qd2 a5 19.h3 Nb4 20.Nc2 Nxc2
21.Rxc2 Rxc2 22.Qxc2 Qd7 23.Qc5 Bxf3 24.gxf3 Rd8 25.Rc1 Qe8 26.Qb6 f6
27.f4 fxe5 28.fxe5 Rd5 29.f4 h6 30.Rc7 Kh7 31.Qa7 Qg6+ 32.Kh2 a4 33.bxa4
bxa4 34.Rd7 Rb5 35.Qxd4 a3 36.Qe4 Rb2+ 37.Kh1 Rxa2 38.Ra7 Qxe4+ 39.dxe4
Kg6 40.Ra6 Kh5 41.Kg1 Kh4 42.Kf1 Kg3 43.f5 exf5 44.exf5 Rf2+ 45.Kg1 Rxf5
46.Rxa3+ Kf4 47.Ra7 g5 48.e6 Re5 49.Kf2 Rxe6 50.Rf7+ Ke5 51.h4 Rb6
52.hxg5 hxg5 53.Kf3 Rb4 54.Re7+ Kf6 55.Re8 Rc4 56.Rf8+ Kg7 57.Rd8 Kg6
58.Rg8+ Kh7 59.Rxg5 Rc6 60.Rg4 Rc7 61.Rg5 Rc8 62.Rg4 Rc7 63.Rg5 Rc8

1.e4 e6 2.Nf3


{ More typical is 2. d4 }

2...c5


{ Sicilian Defense by transposition when 3. d4 is common }

3.c3


{ I've played this at least once and it isn't bad. }


3...d5 4.e5


{ This may be where you went wrong. I think 4. exd5 exd5 5. d4
is the best way to go. The position is a lot like a French
Defense, Tarrasch Variation, with ...c5. Black will often
play ...Ng8-f6, rather than what is sometimes seen
...Bf8-d6, ...Ng8-e7. So, this takes on a different flavor,
but is in the same family. White has some open lines and good
use of e5 and the e-file and maybe ...dxc5 to isolate pawn d5.
It's a game where a lot of maneuvering is possible. }

There is an important point - White's bishop is still open, and
so early Bc1-e3 is possible which may force either the cxd4 exchange
or c5-c4 lock in favorable conditions for white.
