Originally posted by greenpawn34its been played in serious tournament play by GM simon Williams and has a certain rational, that being that black defers castling and concentrates on queenside counter play, the idea being that it take white out of book, no more automatic Yugoslav attacks. The idea is borrowed from the English opening with reversed colours.
Thats a good game SG. When I first saw it I too just slung up my h-pawn.
The Bishop on e2 is good there. Some nice ideas in your game.
Pity you never put a note after Black's 20...Bg7.
Something along the lines of. "and 15 moves after playing g6 Black finally gets to to play Bg7."
The Dragondorf? what on earth next to con cash out of the lads. ...[text shortened]... . You play g6 but develop your f8 Bishop on c5.
Watch this space and get ready to buy the DVD.
Originally posted by sundown316...Nc6 is mainline dragon, people play the Dragondorf primarily to avoid the mainline Yugoslav attack, its not a poor move at all, the knight is heading for e5 and eventually c4, what was poor was making preparations to fianchetto and then not carrying it through
Good game on your part. 7...Nbd7 was poor,7...Nc6 was better. You gave him no time to castle.
