    I refer you to Thread 102442 although I don't know why since you all know where to find it.

    9...Bd7 is the main and best move. Let's stick with the best, most played moves, at least for a while. The Dragon isn't an opening that you want to deviate early in, especially against someone as strong as PAWN RIOT.

    Why all the weird stuff? Why not just play straight down the main lines (which are the main lines for a reason) and get a good game? The Dragon is interesting enough that you don't have to play crazy moves so early.
