Killer Dragon - DVD 2
WARNING: May Contain Small Parts.

The Dragon variation is considered to be one of the sharpest openings in chess. Made popular due to its aggressive nature, it is little wonder that the Dragon has attracted the likes of world number one Magnus Carlsen as one of its enthusiasts.

The second DVD in this two-part series focuses on the Dragadorf variation whereby never seen before ideas are presented. The classical lines of the Dragon are also explored.
