The tournament went well, 3 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw playing up a section (My official rating for the tournament was 1392 and I opted for U1800 instead of U1400). My only loss was a Dutch where I rushed to open up lines on the kingside in a closed position and was rightly punished. The draw was with white against the Sicilian Kan (which I was happy about since my knowledge of theory in the Kan is NOTHING!). I had an interesting game with White against the accelerated dragon that wen 5. Nc3 Bg7 6. Be3 Nf6 7. Bc4 a6 8. f3 b5 9. Bb3 Bb7 and even though I won, I wonder if anyone has seen this double-fianchetto idea before??

Also, I did get a Dragon but just when I was getting excited for a Yugoslav Attack, my opponent played 9. Nxc6 bxc6 10. Bh6 and unfortunately we got an endgame by move 16.  Cry

However, my spirits were lifted in a blitz game afterwards which went 9. O-O-O Nxd4 10. Bxd4 Be6 11. Kb1 Qc7 12. g4 Rfc8 13. h4 Qa5 14. h5? Rxc3 15. Qxc3 Qxa2+ 16. Kb1 Bxg4 17. h6 Nxe4 18. fxe4 Qa1+ 19. Kd2 Qxd1+ 20. Ke3 Bxd4+ and had a very nice Dragon endgame.

Don't try it out in a game that will affect you're rating!!!! Try it out online or against a computer instead.

I thought this line had died a while ago and any doubts should've been layed to rest by Chris Ward's annotation of Sutovsky-Hodgson in last months update.
