The Forintos Variation 10.g4 Nxd4 11.Bxd4 b5 and 12...a5 looks good.
White can avoid this with 8.Bc4 O-O 9.Qd2 Bd7 10.g4 Ne5 11.Bb3, but you already mentioned ...b5.

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Bc4 Yugoslav?

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 Nc6 8.Bc4 0-0 9.Bb3 Bd7 10.g4!?

Any ideas what to do against this?  The obvious approach just transposes to a line that I thought was good for White:
10...Ne5 11.h4 Rc8 12.Qd2 b5 13.h5 b4 14.Nce2 Nc4 15.Bxc4 Rxc4 16.0-0-0 Qa5 17.Kb1 Rfc8 etc.

My point of White's move order is to delay Qd2 so as to stop Black from getting in b5 before spending a tempo on Rc8.  I think Black is fine if he can do that.  I guess there's always 8.Bc4 Qb6!?, which looks risky to me, but I don't know the theory.
