Slaying the dragon II

by Oliver Reeh
9/4/2020 – The diagram shows the starting position of the aggressive Löwenfisch Variation. After the natural 6...Bg7 Black already must be very careful not to be crushed. Are you in a Dragon slayer mood today?

I once had 6.f4 Bg7 5.e5 Nfd7 8.e6 fxe6 9.Nxe6 Bxc3? on the board. White is winning, but only with the amazing 10.Bd2. Sometimes you also have to know how to win a winning position...
