sveshnikov vs dragon

  • #21

    I have tried both of these openings and have decided to stick with 1. E4 E5

    Between the two, go with Sveshnikov. I won games as black and lost as white. I never use dragon as I scored 75% against it.

    The sveshnikov is certainly more interesting to me since there is a blend of strategy and tactics, where the dragon just feels like a few forced variations most of the time. Still it can be exciting to play once in a while. I do think the Sicilian has too many pitfalls for the average club player though. I am pretty low rated and have preferred almost any other way to combat 1.e4. Not for lack of trying the Sicilian though!

    jones played dragon rauser yesterday and had a good wining position happy.png both are double edged and both can be played but point is dragon is being played by top level more than seshnikov in recent time.
