The Sicilian Accelerated Dragon
367 Seiten, kartoniert, CarstenChess, 2018, Erstauflage 1999
In 1998, the authors set out to demonstrate the viability of the Accelerated Dragon as a weapon for Black, not fearing the Maroczy Bind or any other set-up White can come up with. In the intervening years, the opening has been apart of the opening repertoires of world top players such as Carlsen, Ivanchuk, and numerous other top grandmasters. Even though the material is now older, it is still very instructive and will enhance anyone's general understanding of chess and, specifically, of the Accelarated Dragon. This book contains all the original material of the first edition with some additional main games as weil a couple of entirely new segments.
