Hyper Accelerated Dragon Fighting 5.Nxc6 While Singing

Greetings chess friends!

Today's topic is in response to chessman_calum's comment/request from my previous  blog post, Hyper Accelerated Dragon: White's Death By Simplification (where the Bc4 mainline was analyzed), that I should include an analysis on white's early exchange of knights on c6-square (5.Nxc6).

 No problem, my friend chessman_calum, let us scrutinize the position arising from 1.e4 c5  2.Nf3 g6  3.d4 cxd4  4.Nxd4 Nc6  5.Nxc6 below:

Ehr! What's with this white knight taking on c6? This reminds me of a story about a knight who is a bit too sea-sick (sounds like c6) to slay a mighty dragon! Yes, reminds me also of the song that goes like this: "Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Hannalee..."

As dragon wielders facing 5.Nxc6 should we get worried or maybe just laugh our guts out singing? Let's find out and start analyzing below:

There we go. As we saw black is doing alright and so I invite you all of you dragoneers out there to sing with me...

Play the video and all together now, sing!

keep me awake for analysis. buy me coffee.
