*breathing fire on grandmasters*

Oh hey, I didn't see you there. We'll be talking about what I like to call the Spanish Dragon!


Ruy Lopez

 


Berlin Defense

 

 

Fishing Pole Trap

By the way, this is what falling into the trap looks like.
 


Fishing Pole Trap (White Gets Trapped)

 

Now the main focus. The Dragon Variation.

 

 

Dragon Variation

 

Strategy

You all saw how dangerous taking the knight on g4 can be in the Fishing Pole Trap.

With the dragon variation, it flips that concept on its head. Using the knight on g4 to your advantage, you will bring your queen to h2 and get checkmate next turn if possible.

That's what it looks like.
