    qd7 does the trick, maybe even taking on e4

    After 28.Rc1 if 28...Qxe5 then 29.Rc8+ Bf8 30.Qxe5 and Black has lost his Q.

    I will post again a little later to write the notation for dealing with 28...Qd7

    Ok, White played 28.Rc1 and you posted 28...Qd7 does the trick. White plays 29.Qb3. If it's ok I'm going to post one move at a time that way I don't preempt what you think is Black's best response.

    Position is fine except, R at f8 is off the board and the pawn at a7 should be on a6.

    If you could please repost with the correct position I will post White's move after Black's 29...Rd2

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I am involved in a large project at work.

    My response to 29...Rd2 is 30.Ne4

    lol I'm not a stronger player but IMO the simple procedure for slaying the dragon is:1) Take out the opponent's dark squared bishop by exchanging your bishop for it or otherwise.

    2)  Castle on the opposite side.

    3) Launch an attack on his protruding g6 pawn by advancing your own h-pawn.

    In your case you can see that your opponent very cleverly took out your own dark squared bishop in move 9 so you couldn't carry out step 1) above. You didn't follow step 2). You tried step 3) but this is that much weaker without 2) as the h pawn is not backed by the rook on h1.

    So I think it was a series of strategic mistakes and also not being well informed about the opening ideas.

    The diagram on post #31 shows a R on h8 that is actually off the board. Please look at the correct diagram on post #27.
