Details: The Dragon variation is considered to be one of the sharpest openings in chess. Made popular due to its aggressive nature, it is little wonder that the Dragon has attracted the likes of world number one Magnus Carlsen as one of its enthusiasts.
The first DVD in this two-part series focuses mainly on the sharpest lines of the Dragon Variation, namely the Yugoslav Attack. However, alternative lines are also given for those players wishing to shy away from the reams of theory associated with this opening.
The second DVD in this two-part series focuses on the Dragadorf variation whereby never seen before ideas are presented. The classical lines of the Dragon are also explored.
Follow Ginger GM supremo, Grandmaster Simon Williams, as he systematically explains the ideas behind this electrifying opening.
Warning: DVD not suitable for the fainthearted!
