Looking a bit deeper today he appears to have found decent aswers to all lines in the Dragadorf (including Khalifmans line in Anand series) except Bc4 where I am not totally convinced by blacks play since there are some white moves unmentioned.

So we may need to wait for Wiliams book and hope he has some antidotes.

openings seem to rise and fall do to fashion.  as long as the opening gets you to a good middle game position, that should be good enough.  good list of games btw.

Not very many recent games considering how popular the opening has become over the last few years.

I feel it would not be too dificult to find some white improvements to make some of the material on the DVD outdated if not redundant.

I don't agree witn Topnotch that the opening is here to stay once the top players have had to get to grips with it (but perhaps they never will).

I did however feel the Dragon main lines to be a bit shakey 25 years ago (due to d5/e7 weaknesses) but it it obviously still playable at high level.

Somehow I feel the Dragondorf a step too far.

I've heard that Simon Williams is bringing out a book on the Dragondorf which seems a lot more interesting than the above mentioned DVD if it is on the Dragondorf as stated above (as Simon seems to play it quite a lot these days) .

Deos anyone know whether the rumour about Simons book is true.
Knowing my luck it's already printed and on the bookshelves.

First look(have not time to analyse or watched it for at leat a mounth) is that the dvd is about the Dragadorf variation. Most games appears to be new.
