Ultimate Dragon Volume 2 by Gufeld & Stetsko
Paperback, 160 pages
Covers all lines other than the Rauzer; For club and tournament players; The Dragon has attracted World Champions Garry Kasparov and Mikhail Botvinnik; In this second part of their detailed work on the Dragon Sicilian, the authors present coverage, to date, of all lines other than the Rauzer, which is dealt with in Volume One. These lines range from an unhurried "Classical" development of pieces to the early pawn rush f4 and e5 seen in the "Levenfish Variation". Here, compared to the Rauzer, there is a greater concentration of play in the centre of the board where Black is ready to fight his opponent blow for blow. On the other hand, if need be, Black can react to any kingside offensive with a counterattack on the other wing, making full use of the open c-file for his rook and the long h8-a1 diagonal for his mighty Dragon bishop. Whether playing the White or Black side, no competitive player - at club or tournament level - can afford to be without this book.
