I have played several blitz games in this line and I got very good position. The line has surprise value. I dont know if I agree to every recommendation in the base but still interesting. Many players have started to play early Bc4 to avoid the line.

Im his latest course for Modern Chess, IM Krishnater gives a move order for White to avoid Hungarian Dragon (there's free chapter on Dragon). Namely, (after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cd 4.Nd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6), he starts with 6.Bc4 and after Bg7 continues 7.f3 0-0 8.Be3 Nc6, transposing to main lines. I don't see any obvious flaw in such move order, while 6...Nc6 (heading for Hungarian Dragon) allows 7.Nxc6 bc 8.e5. There is 7...Qb6, but whether it is better than main lines after, let's say 8.Bb5+ Bd7 9. Be3, is not clear to me. Can whole variation can be just bypassed by this move order?


I have an acount at ModernChess as well for several years. Bougt base as well as this threads base at Chessable. The author ar ModernChess base  writes that the move order is designed to rule out this very procative line. So the question if black is ready to met Bc4 after all having at least avoided 900 yugoslav if the endgame is not the players tase? A side note the new ModernChess base looks better than Cheparinovs ModernChess base.

Chessable Dragon Course Wing attack Williams

I dont remember if we have discussed Chessable course The Sicilian Dragon : Wing attack? I created a Chessable acount recently and found this base. 

The new idea is very provocate move order vs Yugoslav attack. I dont think I would trust it in Correspondence Chess but might be intesting over the board.  The idea is 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 g6 6 Be3 Nc6 7 f3 h5.
