B76: Yugoslav 9 g4 and Houdini
A recent of my Dragon games was in this line and when I analysed the victory I discovered something strange with Houdini. This side line of 9 g4 has been given as good for black for decades. All engin...

B76: 9.0-0-0 Nxd4 10.Bxd4 Be6 11.Kb1! Qc7 12.Nb5!!
Looking at the NIC database, White scores an amazing 90% after this odd-looking move. In Vigoretto`s new book, no satisfactory defence is offered. Is this the end for 9...Nxd4?
