Tiviakov still has good results with the dragon and he is +2600 so ...if you need a win it's better than the caro or the french  i guess

I am having trouble deciding between "yeah the laser bishop of doom owns" and "are you nuts!?  the dragon is a forced win for black."  I mean who wouldn't call the Dragon bishop the "laser bishop of doom" if there wasn't a forced win, especially if it "owned?"

OK, I admit I started a thread like this entitled "The Legend of the Dragon" a long time ago (when there was a very active Glenn with divine aspirations, but those days are gone Sad ), but never did I think that someone would attempt to out do its absurdity.  At least my choices in the poll had four fairly well-defined options (firm believer, weak faith, weak distrust, absolute distrust).  This poll is just a mess!

Yes.







It's under pressure at the moment but that doesn't make it unsound. You think there would be a whole forum dedicated to an unsound opening? Please, this thread is a complete waste of time.

just wandering in your completely unbiased opinion if it is truley solid. I ask because shashade said he quit plying it because he thought it was unsound
