    what about after 19...Bxb2, 20 Bc1!! winning? Therefore not immediately exchanging rooks on d1, but play 18...Be5!

    I don't think you should play Ng4 even after white play Qd2 instead of f3 because it tranpose into a Najdorf without a6 for black wich is inferior Kasparov Played Nc6 in 1995 in that position against Anand after a long thinking !

    First of all a very good video and series which I am learning a lot from.

    On the topic of how black should have played I think I found a flow in your proposed continuation instead of the mistake 19... R4c5:

    19...Be6 20.g5 Nh5 21.Nf4 Rxc3 Rxc3 and black is at least drawing...instead 22.bxc3 looks just winning for white to me.

    All I can see as "holding" the position for black in this line is 21...Qe5 maybe.

    What do you think?

    At 10:46 I checked the line you gave and it is wrong

    1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0–0 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.Bc4 Bd7 10.0–0–0 Rc8 11.Bb3 Ne5 12.h4 Nc4 13.Bxc4 Rxc4 14.h5 Nxh5 15.g4 Nf6 16.Bh6 Nxe4 17.Nxe4 Rxd4 18.Qh2 Rxd1+ 19.Kxd1 Bxb2

    Move 20. instead of Bxf8, instead he plays Bc1 and white is simply winning. Therefore, 19...Be5 is the only move for black to fight for an advantage in this position.

    At 14:48

    1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0–0 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.Bc4 Bd7 10.0–0–0 Rc8 11.Bb3 Ne5 12.h4 Nc4 13.Bxc4 Rxc4 14.h5 Nxh5 15.g4 Nf6 16.Nde2 Qa5 17.Bh6 Bxh6 18.Qxh6 Rfc8 19.g5 Nh5 20.Nf4 Rxc3 21.Kb1 Rxc2 22.Nxh5 gxh5 23.Qxh5 Kf8

    23...Kf8 is the right move here, if instead of that black plays 23...Rxc2+ as you suggested then he loses a big advantage and is only good enough for perpetual.

    Also worth pointing out is that instead of 19.Rd3 that Karpov played in the actual game, 19.Rd5 is also a valid alternative.

    At 20:51

    1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0–0 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.Bc4 Bd7 10.0–0–0 Rc8 11.Bb3 Ne5 12.h4 Nc4 13.Bxc4 Rxc4 14.h5 Nxh5 15.g4 Nf6 16.Nde2 Qa5 17.Bh6 Bxh6 18.Qxh6 Rfc8 19.Rd3 Be6 20.g5 Nh5 21.Ng3 Rxc3 22.Rxc3

    the engines I checked this line with do not like the exchange sack idea and think that it favors white. Instead of 22.Rxc3 which it considers to be a mistake, it is recommended to recapture with 22.bxc3 and white is the side that has the advantage. 21...Qe5 is what the engine suggests.

    Good video.

     

    Of course at 11:00 black needs to move his queen or white wins the black bishop with:

    1. Qh8+ Bxh8 2. Rxh8+ Kg7 3. Rxd8

    Great video. I'm beginning to use the dragon more and was hoping to see a series such as this one. Definitely planning to view all of them.
