Thanks Dennis.

After watching this awesome video, I tried the Yates with 10.Be3 for the first time in a last round game against a 2300 (I was actually expecting the Marshall) and won, which gave me a shared 1st and some cash :)

It was a nice game, too. all book (or should I say: "video") until black's 16th:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 0-0 9.d4 Bg4 10.Be3 exd4 11.cxd4 d5 12.e5 Ne4 13.Nc3 Nxc3 14.bxc3 Qd7 15.h3 Bf5 16.Bg5 h6 17.Bxe7 Nxe7 18.Nh4 Be4 19.Bc2 Bxc2 20.Qxc2 Qe6 21.Rf1 Rac8 22.f4 f5 23.a4 c5 24.axb5 axb5 25.Nf3 b4 26.Rfb1 Qb6 27.Qf2 cxd4 28.Rxb4 Qc5 29.Rb7 Nc6 30.cxd4 Qc3 31.Qe1 Qd3 32.Qg3 g5 33.fxg5 Qe3+ 34.Kh2 hxg5 35.Ra3 Qf4 36.Nxg5 Qxg3+ 37.Rxg3 1-0

Keep it coming... :)
