En bok om å spille Dragevarianten i siciliansk med svart, bygget på 52 ganske korte og vellykkede partier. Handler om variantene med rokade hver sin vei, fra stillingen etter 1 e4 c5 2 Sf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Sxd4 Sf6 5 Sc3 g6 6 Le3 Lg7 7 f3 0-0 8 Dd2 Sc6.

En herlig introduksjonsbok for alle som vil lære å spille Dragen med svart. Mest for spillere med ratingnivå cirka 1000 - 2000. Dette er en inspirasjonsbok og i mindre grad objektiv vitenskap som forsøker å finne de mulig aller sterkeste trekkene i åpningen også for motparten.

Forlagets omtale:

What’s the best way to start learning a new opening? You can either fill your head with masses of variations and then try to keep it all straight at the chessboard, or you can absorb key patterns and themes that crop up over and over again in your chosen variation.

In The Fighting Dragon, NM Paul Powell takes the second approach. Using a carefully selected collection of short games from international play, Powell shows the dangers that lurk for White in one of the sharpest lines from the whole Sicilian complex, the Yugoslav Attack. In the process, the author lays out a different approach to mastering not just the opening, but both chess and even life itself.

Trying out different ideas is essential to chess improvement, and so The Fighting Dragon showcases a variety of ways for Black to handle White’s responses. After taking in the key concepts, aspiring Dragon players can then deepen their understanding with three dozen critical test positions.

“I will not worry about winning or losing rating points,” writes Powell in the Introduction, “I will embrace the spirit of a warrior.” Take up The Fighting Dragon and start your journey.

Paul Powell is a former Delaware state chess champion and the author of Bobby Fischer: 60 More Memorable Games and Chess Profiles: The Rabbit, the Tortoise, and the Gambler. His proudest accomplishment in chess is working his way up from 1100 level to earn the title of Life Master from the U.S. Chess Federation.
