If you want to know an opening, you should be familiar with its typical positional ideas and remember the most important theoretical lines. But this is not enough. Every opening has its own stock of tactical motives. Therefore, you also have to know the typical tactical patterns which frequently recur in your opening.
IM Valeri Lilov’s course on the essential tactics in the Sicilian Dragon gives you a complete understanding of typical tactical patterns for both sides. The Sicilian Dragon is a strategically and dynamically complex opening full of tactical possibilities. Both sides have a multitude of tactical shots and ideas at their disposal thanks to the asymmetrical pawn structure, with Black’s play generally focusing on the queenside while White tends to play on the kingside.
The aim of this DVD is to improve your understanding of the typical tactical themes of the Sicilian Dragon, as well as to practice them in six different quizzes featuring 100 carefully selected test positions.
