Hopefully Chris Ward will get round to taking a look at this high-level (albeit rapid) game. Meanwhile Dennis Monokroussos has published it with quite extensive notes at 'The Chess Mind' website.

I was happy to see this game because it headed down the "old" Dragon rabbit hole into the Soltis variation, which seems to have become less topical.

13 Bg5 Rc5 was the old theoretical recommendation as far back as the 90's at least, although there is an array of options and White often goes Bg5-h6 anyway.  On the other hand, if Black isn't going to answer Bh6 with ...Bh8, why waste a tempo on 14...Re8?  I assume the computers will dislike both 15 .... a5 and 16 a4, which look way too slow to this former Dragon player.

These are some non-computer thoughts, I'll plug it in when I get home.

While  dont have access to a decent computer or a decent engine since is a swedish holiday right now and I while I also dont use Dragon as main weapon anymore I think we can discuss this game.
I dont give any detailed analys becouse of I can only use a very old machine with too low ply.
