Sicilian Dragon: The Real Deal! (Part 3) - Chess Opening Software Download
by Chris Ward

Following on from Part 1, where important themes and concepts were explained, now it's time to delve into the theory that has shaped this exciting opening over the years. From reasons why once popular variations are played no more (but with revival suggestions!) to coverage of the more modern systems currently deployed by the World's elite, this Part 3 has it all!

Everybody loves Yugoslav Attack encounters, and in this video course it is the sharp 9.Bc4 line that takes center stage. While these days most players focus on the Soltis, Topalov, and Chinese Variations (covered here of course), other Black options also come under the microscope. Deviations from the Yugoslav Attack are also visited, including the trendy "Long Castles Classical" approach.

With his constant monthly monitoring of Dragon games Worldwide on the "chesspublishing" site, Chris argues that rather than being analyzed to death as many had predicted, in fact the opening has flourished in recent times with new ideas and variations frequently popping up. The viewer won't be overwhelmed with myriads of moves to learn but, with a nice choice of systems, will receive a good grounding in all chapters - a fantastic springboard for further investigation. There is simply no doubt that with these video courses assimilated, the user will be more ready than ever to enter the Dragon!
