    This is a continuation of Thread 102175.

    PAWN RIOT has just submitted 7.f3, leading to the following position.



    That was the next move in the Yugoslav Attack.

    There are really two main moves here, although others are possible.

    7. ... 0-0 (The Most Common)

    And

    7. ... Nc6 (Delaying Castling On Purpose- Although Castling Eventually Follows Most Of The Time)

    Other moves are certainly possible.

    I will vote later.

    I know, the set of bloodthirsty nutters! I voted for 5...a6

    I fear a player as good as PAWNRIOT will take this dodgy opening out easily.

    P.S. There is a good reason for why I suggest 7...Nc6 as Black has found it hard work in the 9.0-0-0 lines and Tiviakov himself (one of the worlds best Drogon players) has been delaying castling until White plays Bc4. After looking at these lines I would say it is more prudent to delay castling to deny White this option.

    I think Black has no problems at all after 7...0-0 8. Qd2 Nc6 9. 0-0-0 d5! What line do you have in mind?

    Since we chose the Yugoslav as our best chance against PAWNRIOT I would like to vote Nc6. Maybe we must shuffle the deck a little bit. After all Kingside castling will come next. We have elected "sharp" play - let us go sharp!

    This decision is almost completely moot. It's pretty much 100% guaranteed that ...Nc6 and ...0-0 will lead to the same position. If it was up to me I'd play out both moves without asking anyone.

    ...0-0. keep it plain and simple.
