Seems a solid option for White. Check games by Jansa. As an outright winning attempt though Black should be more than OK in several lines.

I was thinking of picking this line up myself at one point also but eventually rejected it in favour of 6.g3, not that I can say that is objectively any better I just preferred the positions.

I find 6.Bc4 Bg7 7.h3 0-0 8.Bb3 Nc6 9.Be3 Na5 10.0-0 b6 a hard nut to crack. Maybe 9.Bg5 offers more chances, but then White must find an alternative for 2...Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 g6 5.Nc3 Bg7 6.Be3 Nf6 7.Bc4 0-0 8.Bb3 d6 9.h3.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Could be.  It's been regarded rather positively in books by Golubev, Mednis and Jansa.

Hi everyone,
I am wondering about the normal dragon.  The question is if 6.Bc4 a good line?  Meaning is it better than the lavenfish or 6.g3 but not as good as 9.0-0-0 or 9Bc4???
thanks,
Zatara
