Yuri has incredibly good keep-away strategies, but can also excel with some intense rushdown tactics. Her hop D has good priority, and she has some of the best crouch B's in the game, which are very easy to hit confirm.

For keep-away, her air qcf + K fireball is just too good. It would be recommended to use the air qcf + B version since it does not go as vertical as the air qcf + D. It is also best to jump back with this move, since even if the opponent rolls it, Yuri will landed backwards and recovered. Usually when someone spams the air fireballs with Yuri, the opponent will get jumpy or start rolling. Thus, it is usually a good idea to jump back and not throw a fireball, to see if they still react to your jump as if you had thrown a fireball. If they rolled, punish them as they come out of the roll with any combo. If they decided to do a jump attack, dp + A will usually beat them out. Her vertical high jump D is also a very high priority jump attack, best used for intercepting the opponent's jump attempts. Therefore, you can use this move instead, if they start anticipating your air fireballs. Another good strategy would be to do a run up crouch C anti-air after tossing out a number of air fireballs. The run up crouch C works in a similar way that Iori's run up close C does - it will stuff any jump attempt. Running up and doing far B instead is safer since crouch C cannot be whiff cancelled and takes longer to recover. In addition, far B can be done from a distance, and recovers faster, but does less damage.

Yuri also has great rushdown mindgames. Using any of the attack strings listed that end with qcf + A, cannot be punished even if the opponent guard rolls the attack before. For example, her Crouch B, Crouch A, df + B, qcf + A or crouch B, Crouch A, Crouch D, qcf + A cannot be punished even if the opponent guard rolls the df + B and crouch D. The only problem with this attack string is that the qcf + A does not actually make contact with the opponent if he's standing still, but it will hit him if he attacks, moves forward slightly, or jumps. The attack string is more useful with qcf + C but if the opponent guard rolls before this move comes out, he can punish Yuri. Mind you that a guard roll must be used to punish the move. If the opponent simply did a normal roll after the df + B or crouch D, they will not be able to punish her.

Yuri's crouch D and close D(especially) can be cancelled very late if they make contact with the opponent. Thus, it is possible to cancel these moves as late as possible, into her hcb + K running throw and have it still hit, if the opponent blocked the normal. This is not the case if you cancel her close C or crouch C into hcb + K, since they will still be in blockstun, resulting in hcb + K whiffing. Cancelling a delayed close D into qcf + A can result in some good mindgames. Followup the delayed close D with what is appropriate. If the opponent guard rolls the close D, then it is best to not followup with anything. If the opponent keeps blocking or does a normal roll, cancelling to hcb + K will get him usually. The cancel to qcf + A will hit them if they decide to attack right after the close D, or jump.

Another tricky mixup is her Crouch B, ~Crouch B, Crouch A, qcf + A which again cannot be punished, even if the opponent guard rolls. The qcf + A can be replaced with an hcb + K, which will still throw an opponent even if they blocked the crouch A. A similar mixup exists with her Close C/D, df + B, qcf + C. The qcf + C can be replaced with an hcb + K which will hit them if they are blocking. This does not work if you use a close/crouch A, df + B, hcb + K since the opponent stays in block/hit stun.

If you have atleast two stocks, you can do a normal such as close D, then cancel with BC, immediately do a f + A overhead and free cancel to qcf + B in the air. From here you can followup with any combo listed in the combo section. This is a great setup since you are doing an overhead immediately after a strong normal, which is unexpected. This can also work well if you started with a sweep, assuming the opponent blocked the sweep. If the opponent somehow blocks the low attack and the f + A overhead, Yuri has a frame advantage on the air fireball anyway and can followup with any of the other mixups mentioned.
