What\'s your opinion about this opening?
It's a opening that I played many times before, but I wonder what people think about this. It's the Keres attack in the Scheveningen of the Sicilian. So it goes like this : 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 d6 6.g4. I think that people don't use this because it'll goes to a wierd positon.

People use it a lot. It's the main reason that most Scheveningen players use a Najdorf move order to get into the Scheveningen. I have had great results against the Keres attack in correspondence games, but wouldn't want to face it over the board.

maybe but being able to play out of the ordinary can de-balance players and giving you a aces

this opening is a favourite among many chess players.. Judit Polgar is one player who enjoys this opening.. She has won against Anand with this one playing white and has drawn one with Anand playing black.. but what shd be black's response after 6.g4 ? 6.g4 d5 is my choice since e5 and h6 have seen terrible set backs in lots of games..

Seems pretty hazardous to me. You'd better know where you are going with this, for playing it just to get out of the opening book can easily backfire. Black plays 6.Bb6 7.Bd2 Bxc3 8.Bxc3 Nxe3 loses a central pawn for white. If 7. white plays anything else (say 7.Bg5) 7.Bxc3+ 8.bxc3 leaves both queenside and kingside castles pretty undesirable and both king and king pawn hanging loose. So once again i don't recommend playing it unless you have clear ideas how to use it. I don't :)
