    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?

    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.

    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.
