I just joined the Sicilian Dragon chess.com Tournment that starts Febuary 1st. I don't really know the variation so I need to study it. 

I should really study the Sicilian Defense overall first. 

TheChessWebsite.com has this intro video to the Sicilian defense. The video explains the classical version, the Najdor variation, the "risky" Smith-Morra Gambit and for the sake of prepping for the tournment the Dragon. 


Saving this video on the Dragon here for future refrence. Although I'm not sure the instruction is best for me. This guy moves really fast. Find better video?
