Nov-07-15  jerseybob: I don't know where this name "Dragon Formation" comes from. After 6.d5 it's a kind of Benoni, a bad Benoni as Benko proceeds to show. Better is 6.dc, as in Spassky-Fischer, 1972 Game 17.

Nov-08-15  parisattack: Thanks <PhonyBenoni>!

I understand...or maybe not. :) I am particularly sensitive to the Robatsch related names - but I'm just a small fish in the big sea of CG.
