   Jul-06-07 World Open (2007) (replies)
SicilianDragon: I also played at the World Open and such large prizes are always going to create added incentives for players to cheat. The rating system is never going to be perfect, especially with the number of international players out there. FIDE should work with the USCF and other ...
   Mar-23-05 Ljubojevic vs Miles, 1979 (replies)
SicilianDragon: <arturoRivera> I assume you mean 18...exd6. This move simply loses the queen to 19. Bxd8
   Mar-19-05 Sicilian, Dragon, Yugoslav Attack (B76) (replies)
SicilianDragon: <ionnn> Perhaps my comment came out a bit too harsh. I am not saying that 13. Bh6 is losing, or that white has no chances to outplay an unprepared or weaker opponent, my point of view is that on move 13, Bg5 is clearly white's best move and there seems little point in ...
   Jan-22-05 Sicilian, Dragon, Yugoslav Attack, 10.castle long (B78) (replies)
SicilianDragon: Thank you for your kind words. However, I wouldn't call it work as I so much enjoy doing this analysis. @Minor Piece Activity: I'm sorry I have not been on in a while. I have been extremely busy with both College applications (University of Pennslyvania here I come!!) and ...

SicilianDragon: Stripunsky has resigned!!! Nakamura wins the first playoff!
   Dec-03-04 Huebner vs Sosonko, 1987 (replies)
SicilianDragon: Recently this line has fallen out of favor with most player preferring 12. Kb1 with the idea of 12...Nc4 13. Bxc4 Rxc4 14. g4 or 12...h5 13. h3! preparing 14. g4. The 16. Bh6 line is not critical, but black has to know the theory. Today it is well-known that 17...Rxc3! ...
   Nov-10-04 Benoni, Taimanov Variation (A67) (replies)
SicilianDragon: S4NKT, 8...Nfd7 is preferable because it opens up the bishsop so it can help defend the e5-square. White's plan in the Taimanov is to facilitate a quck e4-e5 push to quickly overwhelm black. The move 8...Nfd7 does more to help black's defenses than a move like 8...Bd7 or ...
   Nov-10-04 Sicilian, Dragon Variation (B70) (replies)
SicilianDragon: Cuendillar, I am a bit confused by the way you phrased your question but I will try to answer it. Black usually avoid the bishop swap at g7 because if he can maintain the bishop it is especially useful in defending the weak dark squares around black's king, providing ...
   Nov-08-04 King's Indian Defense (E60) (replies)
SicilianDragon: Bigbear, the KID kingside attack may look easy to play, but if White is ready to defend then black must time everything just right so that he doesn't leave himself overextended on the kingside while also being vulnerable to a queenside pawn storm. Bogdaniel, the KIA is not so
   Nov-08-04 Dutch, Leningrad, Main Variation with Nc6 (A89) (replies)
SicilianDragon: While the statistics after 7...Nc6 may look solid, don't be fooled, White has several strong continuations involving an early c5 after 8. d5 Na5 9. Qa4 c5 10. dxc6 bxc6 11. c5! and after 8...Ne5 9. Nxe5 dxe5 10. c5. In addition, Black is not forced to enter the Leningrad ...
