An idea for the c3 modern from Leela
They've been playing a bunch of moderns in the TCEC lately and this one caught my eye. Maybe interesting if you care about the Nf3/Bd3/c3 modern setups.

1. ...d6 vs 1. ...g6 Modern
1. ...g6 tells White I'm fianchettoing no matter what right from the first move. 1. ...d6 appears more flexible because it keeps the possibility of 1. d4 d6 2. c4 e5 as well as the Philidor, Old Indi...

3 Nc3 d6 4 Be3 a6 5 Qd2 b5 6 0-0-0 Nd7 7 h4 h6!?
The ‘Pseudo-Dragon’ lines of the Modern Defence are, I think, hugely strategically complex and absolutely fascinating, whether Black goes for …h5 or …h6. The former may be the ‘main line’, but the lat...

1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Be3 (Anti Modern)

Appears to cause some problems for the Modern player. There is an option of going for the Pirc with 4...Nf6 and 95% of the time we would get 5.Nc...
