That might be true, but it's the same with many lines in correspondence chess.


Not quite.  Wink

Since this thread is now 2 years old and theory runs faster and faster, is there anything new in the line

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 f5 11. Bd3 Be6 12. c3 Bg7 13. Nxb5 axb5 14. Bxb5 *?
What is the current state of affairs? Is it still playable for White?


Looking at all the correspondence chess games recently played in this line, I notice that almost 99 per cent are draws.  Wink

Even after 12.Bd3 black can play 12...Ne7 (instead of 12...Be6), thus avoiding the 13.Nxb5's sac.  Wink


If white swaps moves 11 and 12, you're back to being forced into the sac line.

So clearly if white wants to pretty much force the line, it must be by this exact move order:


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 f5 11. Bd3 Be6 12. c3 Bg7 13. Nxb5 axb5 14. Bxb5

Black can put a stop to the attempt with an immediate 9...f5, forcing white into an independent line with no sacs on the b-pawn. It cuts the theory down to a tiny fraction of the what the main line deals with, and is quite equal.

Edit: This is with 8.Bxf6 that is given in the OP's line.

10.Sd5 f5
11.c3 Lg7
12.Ld3 Le6
13.Sb5 ab
13.Lb5

This variation is one of the most critical lines against the Sveshnikov.

It's discussed in "The Cutting Edge - The Open Sicilian 1" by Milos Pavlovic on 19 pages.

I think it's important to lure the black bishop to e6 because if you do it not, he will go to the fine b7 square.






Thank you! This is the book I was looking for!

Interesting sacrifice on b5 square in Svesnikov

Hi guys!
Today i played on internet as black game which started with such move order:


1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 e5 6. Ndb5 d6 7. Bg5 a6 8.
Bxf6 gxf6 9. Na3 b5 10. Nd5 f5 11. c3 Bg7  and now my oponent played :12. Nxb5 axb5 13. Bxb5

This position is very interesting. Since I'm not an expert in Sveshnikov variation I want to ask you where i can find sources/analysis of this line. It's not very popular ut in my opinion it might be a great practical weapon. I think there was a book recently which was covering this line but i can't recall author and tittle.

Regards
M.
