I have looked through Rogozenko's book, Pederson's book, Yakovich's book and chess publishing and I am still unsure about whether black has anything more than a draw after 1 e4 c5  2 Nf3 Nc6  3 d4 cxd4  4 Nxd4 Nf6  5 Nc3 e5  6 Ndb5 d6  7 Bg5 a6  8 Na3 b5  9 Bxf6 gxf6  10 Nd5 Bg7  11 Bd3 Ne7  12 Nxe7 Qxe7  13 O-O O-O  14 c4 f5  15 Qf3.  Can anybody help???

Plus why at GM level is 10..f5 more popular than 10..Bg7 ??  Yet ..Bg7 was played by Kasparov in his last couple of Sveshnikovs in preference to ..f5, Radjabov - the present Sveshnikov guru - plays it exclusivley and so does Carlsen......yet all of the other top players play ..f5.

Hopefully John Cox's book will provide some is in the post as I write this!
