Hi guys (and girls)!
Six wicked games for you this month or alternatively five and a piece of fluff depending on which way you look at things! Either way some interesting new ideas and some Dragon stars in action.

We have:

Kutuzovic-Georgiev:: A classy display by a leading Dragon expert in the 'Dragadorf':











Watch those pieces flow!

Bozanic-Sambolec: Confusion and amusement in the 9 g4 Yugoslav.











But is all as it seems?

Eggleston-Ward: Is 9 0-0-0 d5 just a draw. Well with 12...Nxc3 it looks that way to me:











but that's not much good if you are trying to win!

Astengo-Tiviakov: It always seems to me that Sergei can do whatever he wants in the Dragon. Here he delays castling in a Yugoslav Attack and his (slow!?) ...a6 and ...b5 plan:











easily seems to win the day.

Loncar-Armanda: White employs a dodgy Yugoslav Attack move order, castles kingside:











and in my opinion gets his just desserts!

Heslin-Gahir: 'Anti-Sicilian Dragon' (well sort of) annotations within an untrendy 6 Bg5 lower level encounter:











Basically what to some may be interesting fluff!
