    At 22:55, after dxe5, why not Ne6 forking the black king and queen? Then if BxN, QxQ.  What am I missing?

    I am starting to see why I lose so much playing black in the dragon.  There are a lot of critical moments for black - one false move and you're dead.  Keaton has 10 videos in this line and each one is densely packed.  Maybe this is not the line for me?

    The Soltis is an excellent opening choice, if you don't mind losing against a total patzer who's just more booked-up than you.

    Personally, this is the very last variation I could possibly make a video for newbies.

    English GM Jonathan Mestel recalls receiving a telegram from the British Chess Federation at the World Student Chess Olympiad in Mexico City in August of 1977 that read  "Miles says beware of American analysis of 13. Rdg1."  He said he had not the slightest doubt as to which position the telegram referred.  It was the Soltis Variation of the Yugoslav Attack vs. the Dragon Variation of the Sicilian Defense.

    At 2:43 (I forgot the move number), white moves his bishop to b3, and the text move is Rc8. Why not Na5, forcing a trade of white's (stronger) light-squared bishop?

    Enjoyed it. Just the fact some of the top players are playing it shows it must be a pretty good move.

    This was a cool video but the dragon never came out?  I was waiting for the dragon to come out and eat all the chess pieces?
