    I've decided to once again start playing the Sicilian Dragon, and I know there are many RHPers that use this opening avidly (unlike me ). So if you have some instructive or entertaining Dragon games (Especially in the Yugoslav) I'd be interested in seeing them.

    You can post in progress games so long as you make it clear that it's in progress and cannot be commented on (I think..). Especially if it's in regards to the opening only. Don't bother posting it though, I'm sure I can figure out which one of your 3 in progress games it is...

    BTW:With the login Yugoslav you better have more than one!

    Don't spam my thread. Go away, come back when you're rated 1500.

    I would have more if it werent for everyone playing a closed sicilian against me or something inferior like 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. Bc4?!

    and my game isn't truly a yugoslav attack move order, but I decided not to be creative and allowed it to transpose into one.

    Yeah I saw. Looks interesting so far though. I understand what you're saying about the 3.Bc4 move. It's so insanely popular on here and I can't figure out why that is. I guess it just looks natural. Of course, the higher your rating gets the better chance you'll be facing an Open Sicilian.

    ges what when we play and I'm White and I'll do e4 and if you play c5 I'm going to play the closed sicialian.

    go add 300 points to your rating first.

    and when I made this name, I was actually refering to a variation of the Accelerated Dragon.

    I have 200+ points on that scrub. 1550's don't play like 1350's.
