Understanding the Sicilian Dragon

Understanding the Sicilian Dragon

The Sicilian Dragon (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6) was so named partly because of its ferocity and partly because Black's battle formation may resemble a dragon. This course is designed to familiarize players with typical Dragon strategies and develop a feel for where the pieces belong.
