Sicilian 2...Nc6 3.Bb5 Qc7

Dear Chessmood Family

I’m facing this line reasonably often in blitz.

I tried 4.Nd5, 4.Nf3, 4.d3 and even taking. I’m not quite sure how to continue, any good suggestion? (I did not see this in the course...)

thank you!

Hello Regis

I made a note in this line - maybe from a streaming - 4.Nge2, a6 5.Bxc6, Qxc6 (dxc6 6.f4)  6.d4, cxd4 7.Nxd4

Thanks a lot Mogens! 
Lots of options to choose from, I’m glad now I know which line I should investigate.

Mogen's 4.Nge2! is the best move. Why not 4.Nf3? 
In case if opponent plays 5.dc6 we'll have f4 plan.
