Win with the Sicilian Dragon – IM Milovan Ratkovic
The deep calculation, terrifying sacrifices, brutal kingside attacks…
Is this how people describe the way you play?
Would you like people to describe your play like this…
“I hate playing them, I always get smashed by some crazy sacrifice!”
If your answer is a big YES! – then you’ll need sharp and dynamic openings, for both white and black…because without the right start, it’ll be impossible to even get your brilliant attack off the ground!
IM Ratkovic suggests the Sicilian Defense against 1.e4, specifically the mighty Dragon variation!
That is, 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 *
This opening has by far THE most sacrifices and THE most everything-on-the-line style play you’ll ever encounter, so if you really aspire to be that aggressive, attacking maestro…
…give the Dragon a chance to breathe fire onto the board in your games!

Here’s what you are going to learn:
- First a Bishop, then a WHOLE Rook! Your opponent plays g4 and sees himself soon tearing open the h-file with h5…but then you rock him with …Bxc2+!! followed by the quiet but deadly …Rab8!! Such ideas will have the crowd applauding as you score the point!
- Pawn Sacs to BLAST Open the Diagonals! In the Dragon, all that matters is activity! Use these pawn sacrifices to breathe fire down the long diagonals and allow your bishops to rule the board!
- Your Bread and Butter, The Powerful …Rxc3 Sac! This theme pops up so often that you’ll be looking for it everywhere. Sacrifice your rook and tear open the king position with style!
This is a line Kasparov used to crush Vishy Anand in a World Championship match while Carlsen has used it much more recently…
What do they have in common? The will to win BRILLIANTLY!
