Sicilian Dragon: The Real Deal!

with GM Chris Ward

Part 2

The Yugoslav Attack always grabs an audience and in this video course it is the 9 0-0-0 and 9 g4 lines that come under the microscope with all systems to date reflected upon but a bias towards where we are now and where it looks like we’re heading. Also featured are the ‘Dragadorf’ systems including the fashionable early …h5 ideas such as the one championed by Magnus Carlsen!

With his constant monthly monitoring of Dragon games Worldwide on the chesspublishing site, Chris argues that rather than being analysed to death as many had predicted, in fact the opening has flourished in recent years with new variations frequently popping up. The viewer won’t be overwhelmed with myriads of moves to learn but with a nice choice of systems, will receive a good grounding in all chapters that can be used as a fantastic springboard for further investigation. There is simply no doubt that with these video courses assimilated, the user will be more ready than ever to enter the Dragon!

Everybody loves Yugoslav Attack encounters and in this video course it is the sharp 9 Bc4 line that takes centre stage. Whilst these days most focus on the Soltis, Topalov and Chinese Variations, also covered here, other Black options similarly come under the microscope. Everything non-Yugoslav Attack is also then visited including the trendy ‘Long Castles Classical’ approach.
