Thanks for the tip.  I briefly looked at 15...Bf5 during the game and almost immediately discarded it because of 16.g4.  Then I turned to 15...Rb8 and 15...Qc7 and spent my time only on those two moves.  Since then, I've decided that 15...Qc7 is better than 15...Rb8.  I'll take a new look now at 15...Bf5.  Initially, I still don't like letting white get the g4 shot in against my bishop, either on move 16 or perhaps after 16.Qc5 first.

In answer to your question, neither. The move of choice appears to be 15..Bf5 as played by Mr Golubev in 1999 against Van der wiel. Popovic-Markovic 1998 is worth a look also.

Question about 9.O-O-O Yugoslav

I have a question about a line in the 9.O-O-O Yugoslav Dragon.  I played an IM yesterday, and predictably, I lost.

IM -  Lost Highway, game/90, July 16, 2005

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 O-O 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.O-O-O d5 10.exd5 Nxd5 11.Nxc6 bxc6 12.Bd4 Bxd4 13.Qxd4 Qb6 14.Na4 Qa5 15.b3

This is the position I want to ask you about.  I considered 15Rb8 and 15Qc7.  I played 15Rb8, but now Im not sure.  Perhaps 15Qc7 is better?  Anyway, I lost in 34 moves, but not before missing a draw on move 28 that the IM pointed out to me immediately after the game.  He had missed it too, and only saw it after he moved.  I guess I must have believed his mistake was actually a trap.  But, all that is irrelevant to the question about which move is better:  15Rb8 or 15Qc7?

Thanks.
