Accelerated Dragon Part 1 and Part 2

Henrik Danielsen

GM Henrik Danielsen, the author of The Insight chess show, has prepared over 25 lectures on the Accelerated Dragon. The complicated system begins with 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 g6. The series starts with Part 1 video about 5. Nc3 Bg7 6. Be3 Nf6 7. Bc4 and various variations showing the complexity of the Sicilian Dragon, including options for black and white, as well as nice queen trap.

Part 2 concentrates on a concrete example in the sequence 8. Bb3 a5 9.a4. It shows the importance of the pawn structure later in the game and reaches to positions explored both by Topalov and Kramnik in famous games.

Parallel to the Accelerated Dragon series, GM Henrik Danielsen will continue with the Polar Bear system. A total of 5 videos are already available (Part 1 here and Part 2 here), expect more practical games and ideas this week on
