Yugoslav Attack 9 Bc4 Soltis with Kb1 and ...Re8
I just saw GM Chris Ward praising blacks openingchoice in the game Robert Hovhannisyan - Luis Marcos Medarde Santiago:
[pgn][Event "4th Memorial Oliver Gonzalez"]
[Site "?"]
[Date "2015....|/pgn]
However on my blog I wrote that I found a modest advantage for white with 18.fxg4 see http://chess-brabo.blogspot.be/2015/10/mistakes.html
So I wonder if I missed something.

Interesting White attempt in the Soltis!
Dear all
Let us start with the Soltis main line 13.Bg5 Rc5 14.Kb1 Re8 and 15.Bh6 Nc4
