    how can you guys say that this opening is not effective when this was one of Garry Kasparov's openings that he used for so long?

    True... but then you cant castle which i think is one of the highlights of developing both the knight and bishop on the kingside

    How does one pronounce this opening?

    After 3. Bb5... I like to play (in blitz and bullet games) 3....Nd4

    May not be sound, but it's interesting.

    Really helps to double up the opponent's pawns.

    this opening is good and sharp

    I'm currently using this because it looks similar to the Ruy Lopez, and I actually like it more than the sharp Sicilians.

    Only bad thing I remember from the dragon sic. was of course the antidragon attack, which kind of shuts the whole game down.

    It's been decades since I saw that, but I do remember it- maybe someone else will show it

    The only real problem with all of these openings is they go under the assumption that black is going to play c5 on the opening, which most people would play d5.

    An excellent weapon for white against 2...Nc6! The idea for white is to castle kingside quickly and then start the fight for the center. After O-O white will have Rf1-e1 which can come in handy for pushing e4-e5 and opening the file with exd5 or exf5. White can play c2-c3 and d2-d4. White has the option Bb5-f1. Also the option Bb5-a4-c2. As well as Bb5xc6 followed by a2-a3, Ra1-b1 and b2-b4, the idea being to fight the c5-pawn to win the d4 square and develop the dark squared bishop to Bc1-b2. A lot depends on the pawn structure if really the black bishop on c8 will be stronger than a white knight after exchanging Bxc6. I think that practice has shown that white does manage to pressure black in these variations.

    I get this alot when i play. Moving the bishop seems piontless because the knight is alresdy defended by the pawn on d7 and black can repond by a6.
