Pelikan Sicilian Question. I have played a lot of the pelikan sicilian and now suddenly I have a doubt!
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5 6.Nd-b5 d6 7.Bg5 a6 8.Na3 b5 9.Bxf6 gxf6 10.Nd5 f5 11.Bd3 Be6

And here white has two lines, either 12.0-0 Bxd5 13.exd5 Ne7 etc or 12.Qh5 when black can play 12....Bg7 or 12....Rg8 (which is what I play). My question is the following...
If for 12.Qh5, black plays 12.....Bxd5 13.exd5 Ne7, then what is white's strongest continuation? If white's best move is 14.0-0, then black has managed to force white into the 12.0-0 line! And I don't really see any other move for white.... For example, 14.Bxf5 Qa5+ and white is in trouble, or 14.Nxb5 and then black can just play Bg7 or for that matter even maybe Qb8 (though I haven't looked at this).

So basically, for 12.Qh5 Bxd5 13.exd5 Ne7, what is white's strongest move?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.. as I want to become a GM of Sveshnikov/Pelikan :-).

Re: Lordoftherings What do you mean by

"really interesting...especially Va5 and b4 moves...Does someone know about?"

this? After Qa5+ white playing e4? I thaught that line is in my sicilian book...
The svesnikov bible by GM J. van der Wiel :) Great book btw.

RE: Try to look at my pelikan/sveshnikov mini tournament. Think you will find it very helpful. I have personally played that line, and after Qh5, I played Rg8 which is a pawn sacrifize, and my game with sokolsky (white), he came ahead, I couldn't get a good attack vs the pawn.

cash1981 First, everyone thanks for the replies.

Cash1981, I think you erred somewhere against Sokolosy. As for Qh5-Rg8, g3-Rg5, the best white move is Qd1. I haven't checked what black's reply should be for Qxh7 though. However, I too play the Rg8 line, and I think that for g3, ....Rg4 is even more exciting than Rg5 and usually is followed by f4-ef4, Nf4-Rf4!? with unclear position and perhaps compensation for the exchange!

invincible1 You are probably right. I am too trying to become a good pelikan sicilian player. Why don't you play in a team anymore?
