Rossolimo with a3 b4

Hey all, when I say my coach about Rossolimo with b6 in the courses after b6 white plays Nh2 but my coach said that after b6 white has very interesting idea white plays a3 and after some move b4 and make some game on queenside... So what we must play when white plays with a3 and then b4?

Well, check the Youtube link below to the game Wang Hao - Carlsen, World Blitz Championship 2018.

I know it's only a 3+2 minute game so I'm not sure how correct it all is, but Carlsen is Carlsen. :-) Especially since he had prepared the Nc6-Sicilian for the Wch match with Caruana. So he has probably checked this line more than just a little bit. ;-)

Also, his opponent wasn't exactly a pushover either (2700+) but still lost as white in 36 moves...

Bravo Raf! 
Surer, a similar idea did Caruana against Meier this year. 
But send your game, so I can give an accurate answer!
