I don't have a direct link but the game analysed in the newsletter is Jones-Van Wely, Staunton Memorial 2009. His annotations are a good complement to Martin's ChessBase video (for free) since Aagaard doesn't cover 10.Qe1 but looks at White's other serious tries.

PS: It's the August 2, 2010 Newsletter.

I'd imagine the Martinesque line 6...Nc6 7.0-0 e6 8.f5 exf5 9.d3 Nge7 10.Qe1 h6 would be an effective reply, but wasn't this hole fixed in a previous Quality Chess newsletter?


I'm not sure. Do you have a link to that newsletter? I'm trying to search for it, but can't find it.

Is this line sound for black?
1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 d6 3. f4 g6 4. Nf3 Bg7 5. Bb5+ Bd7 6. Bc4
This isn't mentioned in Ftacnik's Sicilian book so I wanted to see if there was any theory on this, since people say the bishop on d7 is misplaced.
