Easy Guide to the Dragon - Mikhail Golubev

Easy Guide to the Dragon
  • Publisher: Everyman Chess

  • Published: 1999/12

  • Edition: Paperback

  • ISBN: 185744275X


The Dragon is in many ways the most logical way for Black to play the Sicilian. He develops his pieces quickly and aggressively, challenging White to attack before Black consolidates his positional pluses, or turns them into a devastating counterattack. The Easy Guide to the Dragon shows Black's best responses to all lines, focusing particularly on the critical Yugoslav Attack. It shows up-to-date, detailed coverage by a leading Dragon specialist and includes recommendations for White. Golubev has devoted particular attention to the Yugoslav Attack with 9-0-0-0, a fashionable system which is his recommendation for White. (5 3/4 x 8 1/4, 144 pages, illustrations)

Mikhail Golubev is a young Ukranian grandmaster. He is one of the world's leading expert on the Dragon Sicilian, having played it as White and Black for many years.
