To be honest it looks to me like you just don't like the 'feel' of the positions Smiley Happens!

Generally best to play something else - its a very hard sort of thing to overcome even if the position is OK. Unless of course you're determined to broaden your chess horizons by actively choosing to play it.

In that line, Hiarcs book recommends 9. .. Bd6 instead of .. Be7, although I am not sure that is any good. A correspondence game (drawn) tried .. Rb8:

Hello and thanks for your answer!

My problem with Qb6 (as Gelfand played earlier and change to Ng6 after his game against Caruana) is:

White has a very easy plan of b4 Rb1 with b5 and Nd5- I can't see how black can really improve his position (maybe to delay e5.. but evan than b4 looks strong) and get a meaningfull counterplay.

Qc7.. also seems to give white to build his position with Be3& Be2, and it's looks like Black will play Ng6 afterwards Undecided

You can avoid the whole line by not playing 6. .. Ng6. The most popular line both in OTB and correspondence seems to be .. Qb6. .. Qc7 also looks good.

Find a good plan against Caruana's plan

Hello!
Someone may help me to find a good plan against Caruana's plan in the e6 Rossolimo?

It looks like a kind of worse Hedgehog position- black has a weird knight on g6.
I saw how some GM handled this position and not so impressed.
Anyone can help me to find an interesting plan for black?
Thanks!
