    nice, amazing a 1850+ would try the Dragon...
    and you went with 9. Bc4, which is fine...
    I just prefer the 0-0-0 line...
    at that level, he should know better than to take the knight...
    also, using the pin on the f7 pawn was nice...
    also, you could have just played pawn h7+ where Kg7 is met by simply checking on g5 with the queen, and Nxh7 is met by Qxh7++
    that doesn't matter, black's first mistake was Qc7, that was weak...
    then taking the poisoned knight was the loser...
    well played!

    your stupid Qc7 is the book move and endorsed by Kasparov.(the point of having the open c-file is to put the heavy pieces on it)

    Edit- Even after exchanging knights Qc7 is fine but better the move before.

    no, moron...
    the rook belongs on c7, and the bishop on d7, not b7

    no ...Qc7 is a trademark move of the sicillian I should know RECUVIC taught me the sicillian and hes an IGM!

    Edit: There is a variation where the bishop goes to b7 I don't remember the name but blacks second move instead of ...d6 it is ...b6.


    Edit: I remembered it Its called the Katalimov variation(2...b6)

    I'd LOVE Sicilian lessons...Especially in Najdorf.
    that is his tag on this site. All you do is just PM him and then its his decision. and if you play the Naj against me I will crush you with my yugoslav attack

    not relevant.

    I would expect a GM to kick your but even playing 1a4 2h4 3 a5 etc...

    and, no offence, same would apply against me too...
