Grand-Prix-D7.2

TIP OF THE DAY IN THE DRAGON DEFENSE

Henryli2012 vs KaydenChan

Grand-Prix-D7.3

Last move from black was 1…e5. This move 90% of the cases in the Sicilian Dragon is bad! The reason is we are blocking the a1-h8 diagonal of the dark bishop, also known as the Dragon Bishop. Usually the g7 bishop is a strong piece for everything, to defend the King and for making a good attack over c3 and b2, but right now with the pawn on e5 this is not possible.

 

MOVE OF THE DAY

Blacks move was Ng3!! Making a deflection over c3 square! Right now if white takes
Ng3…Bc3! Killing move! Game continues with 2.Qd5 Ne2 3.Qc4 Nc3 -+.
