    Hi,

    I am trying to say this:

    "The only thing that is XXX me from this variation is..."

    But I don't know exactly what is/are the correct word(s) to use at the place of "XXX".

    Basically what I am trying to say is this:

    I like this variation a lot, but there's one single thing that I don't like about this variation and this thing will stop me from playing this variation.

    Note that the term "variation" is a term in chess to denote a line in an opening (a sequence of initial moves).

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    I'd stick close to the formula you use and say "The only thing that I dislike about this variation is...."
