The Accelerated Dragon - a sharp weapon against 1.e4 - DVD
On move five White has basically two continuations. First, 5.c4 – the popular Maroczy system, against which Kosintseva has a number of strong recommendation in store. Second, the “Open Variation” 5.Nc3, against which the grandmaster offers no less than two promising systems: the modern dynamic treatment with a quick d7-d5, which is a firm part of the repertoire of top grandmaster Boris Gelfand from Israel, who employed this line successfully on a number of occasions in 2017 which made it very popular.
And the quieter, strategic approach with …d6 and … Qa5, which gives the game an entirely different character. Kosintseva explains the theoretical main lines and side lines of the Accelerated Dragon, but also the many strategic finesses of this opening with its typical plans and pawn breaks (such as d7-d5 and b7-b5), and of course she also shows clever tactical stratagems such as the classical Sicilian exchange sacrifice ...Rxc3 followed by ...Nxe4. The material learnt can be practised with interactive tasks with video feedback which makes you fit for the practical game – and helps you to make your opponent sweat!
