The Dragon is one of Black’s most daring openings, leading to fascinating positions with opposite castling and strong mutual attacks. This DVD provides a complete and up to date repertoire to help Black to score with the Dragon. Daring exchange sacrifices are mixed with in-depth analysis of Black’s most reliable defences to give Black numerous options to play. The DVD includes games from the world’s elite, correspondence games and even engine-games to bring you up to speed with current developments in the Dragon. White players afraid of the black attack in the main lines of the Dragon with 9 Bc4 often go for safer options such as 9 0-0-0, 9 g4, or more positional lines based on castling kingside. The DVD covers all these lines, offering sound solutions for Black against White’s best tries while showing how to exploit White’s more dubious tries. The DVD is aimed at the ambitious tournament player who wants a sharp but well founded repertoire that puts immediate pressure on his opponent. But it is also for all chessplayers who want to know more about the secrets of what might well be the sharpest of all chess openings.

In the meantime Sicilian opening theory has grown so much that many players seek refuge in sub-variations. Whether with the Morra Gambit (2.d4), the Grand Prix Attack (2.f4) or the Closed Sicilian (2.Nc3), White has many interesting possibilities. But Black too can flee after the main move 2.Nf3 into variations which involve much less theory, one of these being the O'Kelly Variation 2...a6!?=> More products: Sub-variations
I can recommend Peter Heine Nielsen‘s video to all chess players. For advanced players it is interesting to observe the Danish grandmaster's handling of the opening. The Dragon is also theoretically sound and it can‘t hurt to add an opening to one‘s repertoire.
