    Maybe it's time for

    1. Another Sicilian Dragon Thematic. (It's been over 2 yrs since the last one).
    2. Sicilian Sveshnikov Thematic (Never been one before).
    3. Semi-Slav Thematic

    What do you guys think?

    How about a caro-kann advance, van der wiel attack (1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. e5 Bf5 4. Nc3 e6 5. g4) ?

    Anything with Sicilian in the title is a must for me. Don't normally play the Dragon, but only because I'm ignorant. Would be a great way for me and so many others to experiment.

    Had to enter the recent English tourney despite swearing I'd devote myself to clan games.

    I'd like to see any open Sicilian theme.

    I like this one and perhaps a catalan.

    Yes to a Catalan too. Many of my past opponents will shocked to learn I've not played it in a couple of recent games.
