A new large-Nc expansion that shares some advantages of topological expansion (TE) while retaining a significant predictive power was proposed. As such, the results obtained in the new large-Nc limit were complementary to those derived in the 't Hooft limit. It was argued that the orientifold theory generalization of QCD to arbitrary Nc can be used in order to make predictions for one-flavor QCD.
