The Monthly Dragon - 11. .. Qa5 Chris Ward's nostalgic decision

by ChessBase
11/19/2022 – We have a new show on ChessBase with Grandmaster Chris Ward. The Sicilian Dragon aficionado is back on-screen, and presents us games, news, moves, tactics, ideas, and much more about his "go to" opening each month. In the first episode, Chris is presenting us one of his own, rare dragon games, which he played quite recently. The English Grandmaster had a couple of options to continue with his dragon, but chose the good ol' move 11. .. Qa5, which caused several mate threats a little later. | Photo: John Upham

The Monthly Dragon

with GM Chris Ward

The British Grandmaster Chris Ward is always delighted, if he can play his favourite opening as Black - The Sicilian Dragon.

Ward's knowledge about this strong opening is covered in several of his books, his blog on chesspublishing, and his three, greatly popular Fritztrainers in our ChessBase shop.

With the new ChessBase series "The Monthly Dragon", the passionate Salsa dancer is showing us the newest tactics, plans, and development of this fascinating opening.

Lucky for us, the dragon is an opening, played by some of the best players in the world. This means, Chris probably won't run out of fuel for new content.
