Feb-22-06  DeepBlade:

A funny video, explaining the Sicilian, Dragon, Yugoslav Attack. Well it is actualy a serious video, but the host has a funny accent

Feb-22-06  SlavAttack: <DeepBlade: > If you think this guys has a funny accent, you have not been to graduate school. :-) Thanks for the link!
Sep-22-08  ongyj: After a little experience with the Dragon defence, I'm just wondering if the only drawback for Black is the fact that after 5...g6 and eventual ...0-0 White has an obvious kingside target to aim for. If so, is it possible for Black to consider delay, if not forgoing castling altogether? Maybe try all the other usual moves 1st, like ...Nc6, ...Bd7, ...Rac8 and maybe, since Black has yet to castle, find time to play ...a6 followed by ...b5 ?

Thanks in advance for sharing your experience, insight and/or knowledge ^^
