The Deadly Sicilian Dragon: Destroy The Maroczy Bind with the Henley Method

This is an opening for warriors, those who like to battle looking to take home the spoils.

And there’s no better person to teach you how to emerge victorious than American GM Ron Henley.

If you’re a Sicilian Dragon player, the Maroczy Bind is terrifying!

In fact, many players quit playing the Dragon just so they don’t have to face it.

Should you stop firing up the Dragon? Nope.

There’s a smart technique to exploit the hidden weaknesses of this peculiar setup and break free from its positional clasp, ultimately launching a crushing counterattack on White.

Hint: it involves a weird knight move!
