At the latest after the game Karjakin - van Wely, 2013, I consider the dragon as a dubious opening.


An anonymous amateur of unknown rating says an opening is bad. Could you discuss why in relation to existing theory? Comment on the game, provide a link?
Fair point perhaps. Or perhaps not.

The game is here:
http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1705805
also:
http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chesslike.pl?gid=1705805

Were you surprised by Rd8? Do you prefer Jones' Rb8?

"Discuss"


Why don't you refute my assertion? It should be easy, because I'm just an unknown amateur.

It is not enough to be opinionated. One must also be informed.

New Titles just released by Anand and Carlsen's sometime second, Nielsen :

and

The Bc4 sample looks incredibly educational.

Might take his opening up, as it looks ( at least a little) safer now than in prior years and is probably Black's sharpest attempt to win.
