The Sicilian Defense, Accelerated Dragon (Parts 1 & 2)Volume 1 - A Sharp and Solid System against the Maroczy Bind
The Accelerated Dragon is an exciting way to meet 1.e4. By stationing the Bishop on g7, Black hopes to breathe fire down upon the White Queenside.
In Part One of a two DVD series, IM Andrew Martin covers the most popular White counter among Grandmasters, the Maroczy Bind. He gives two ways for Black to meet this strong system, one sharp, one solid. Take your pick!
Video running time: 93 minutes.
Volume 2 - A Sharp and Solid System against the Accelerated Dragon
The Accelerated Dragon move-order limits White's choice of aggressive variations and that is why it is so popular with many strong players. On Volume Two of this series Andrew Martin examines White's choices apart from the Maroczy Bind:
1) Classical Variation
2) Lines with Nxc6
3) The Pseudo-Yugoslav attack.
The conclusion is reached that Black is in fine shape against all of these ideas. In 2010, The Accelerated Dragon remains an excellent counter to 1 e4.
