That’s interesting, thanks. The problem with the repertoire I’m currently trying to construct is that I was thinking to side-step the Sveshnikov with 3. Nc3 and 4. Bb5 (if needed). However, there is also 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 g6 and there goes Maroczy and most probably I would try to get into a Bc4 system, resulting in the Topalov (and that’s the best case as there are also the ...Qa5 and other systems against a Yugoslav set-up vs. the Acc. Dragon). Not sure how to deal with this dilemma – the Sveshnikov is the Sicilian I would have liked to face the least.  Sad

g4 yugoslav vs Dragon and the Bind vs accelerated seems like a good combo. When playing the Bind be shure to study the line where black exchanges early at d4 and the sharp lines where black plays for an early f5 break.

About Topalov line, that line I call unlear results after

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. Bc4 Bd7 10. O-O-O Rc8
11. Bb3 Nxd4 12. Bxd4 b5 13. h4 a5 14. h5 (14. a4 {is a common mistake} bxa4
15. Nxa4 (15. Bxa4 Bxa4 16. Nxa4 Rc4 17. b3 Nxe4 18. fxe4 Rxd4 19. Qe3 Rxd1+ (
19... Rxa4 {is an interesting move} 20. bxa4 Qc7 $40) 20. Rxd1 Qc7 $19) 15...
Bxa4 16. Bxa4 Rc4 17. Bb3 Nxe4 18. Qe3 Rxd4 19. Rxd4 Ng3 20. Rdd1 Nxh1 21. Rxh1
Qb8 $19) 14... a4 15. hxg6 hxg6 16. Bxf6 exf6 17. Bd5 $13 {
I think that both b4 and f5 are playable} *

Thanks, interesting what you say about the Topalov, but the reason I took it out is that it'll probably not show up with the move-order I am considering (9. g4 and Maroczy vs. the Accelerated)..

About old mainline you might consider Anand-Khalifman as a model game. I assume that we are talking about GM level games.

A good place to start are also to subscribe here at chesspub (or a commercial database) and filter database for a typical starting position.

Also about Topalov system, at Internet I have meet lines where white does not play Nd5 but istead makes h4 and after a5 the position is double edged.

Looking for sample games in the Yugoslav

Hi dear friends,

I was studying the Yugoslav the last few days and was looking for a few sample games where some of the most important schemes are shown in a crystal clear way. The games don't have to be contemporary or of theoretical importance - just a few cases where the thematic attacks or defences have made an impression on you. E.g. Karpov-Korchnoi or Fischer-Larsen have made an impression on me and show White's thematic attack against non-Soltis lines.

I am particularly interested in the following:

- 2/3 games in the old main line (non-Soltis) showing White's thematic attack (it would be good to see e.g. attacks starting with h4 or attacks starting with g4 or Black sacrificing on g4 etc., maybe a good exchange sac, though I've seen a few in the Mastering the Endgame series..)
- 1/2 games where Black's Chinese is succesful
- 1/2 games where White is better against the Chinese
- 2/3 games with the Qa5 sortie (succesful or not for Black)
- 2/3 games with the Soltis Defence (showing the most typical plans)
- Maybe 2/3 games with sidelines (e.g. 9. Bc4 Nd7 or 8. ... Bd7)

Please no Topalov system, no Acc. Dragon (unless it transposes to the proper), no 9. O-O-O d5 lines, not really interested in positional lines..

Would be grateful to get any feedback, cheers  Smiley
