Foxy DVD Series – Vol 105
The Accelerated Dragon is an exciting way to meet 1. e4. By stationing the Bishop on g7, Black hopes to breathe fire on the White queenside. In Part One of a two-part DVD series, IM Andrew Martin examines the following of White’s choices in this system:
* Classical Variation
* Lines with Nxc6
* The Pseudo-Yugoslav Attack
The conclusion is that black is in fine shape in each of these systems. Even though it has been employed by many of the world’s best players for decades, the Accelerated Dragon remains an excellent counter to the ever-popular 1. e4.
