whats the idea behind 6. Bd3 in the "normal" Dragon (1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Sc3 g6 6. Bd3)? In my opinion bishop has to go to e2 or c4 ...

6.Bg5... is it dangerous?
Hi Guys,
There is an interesting article on Jeremy Silman's site that claims that 6.Bg5 is problematic for black. I want your opinion on this.

Cheapo line for white
Here's a pathetic cheapo line white can play against the Dragon. It's had a pretty good success rate for me in blitz, but generally only works once per opponent Smiley
