Product Code: DVD0132CL

Alternative Views:


Content: 2 hours and 40 minutes of instruction and analysis in a series of 6 lectures.  


The Dragon is one of the main lines of the Sicillian where Black fianchettoes their bishop on the h8–a1 diagonal. The line is one of the sharpest variations of the Sicilian, making it one of the sharpest of all chess openings. 


The modern form of the Dragon was originated by German master Louis Paulsen around 1880. It was played frequently by Henry Bird that decade, then received general acceptance around 1900 when played by Harry Nelson Pillsbury and other masters. 


Here David and Bryan show you how the Dragon can be used successfully and how it can be defeated.
