Hi guys!
I have six interesting tussles for you this month and they are:

Stefansson-Kjartansson: I've never been a fan of the ...Qb8 system in the 9 Bc4 Yugoslav Attack:











After seeing this game you are unlikely to be either!

Motylev-Savchenko: This features the rather bemusing 9...Qc7 in a high level encounter:











No offence Mr Savchenko but this isn't really why people play the Dragon!

Mas-Jones: This is a jewel of a game that demonstrates why, despite the occasional reservation, the talented young English GM Gawain Jones is completely at home playing the Dragon. This encounter introduces a new idea for Black in the Chinese variation when White makes a home for his king on a1 and check out that finish!

Mazur-Tvarijonas: A successful debut on this site for 14...Qc8 in the main line 9 0-0-0 d5:











Surely it can't be any good, or can it?

Hernandez Guerrero-Gulko: It's 'Dragadorf' time but do I not like this! Be sure to check next month's update for the follow up on this possible switch in trend towards an early g4 and h4.

Baramidze-Conquest: Sort of Hyper-Accelerated Dragon with Stuart responding dynamically to the first appearance on this site of 7 Qb3:












Back real soon.
