Sicilian Accelerated Dragon by Carsten Hansen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Sicilian Accelerated Dragon (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 g6) is one of the most exciting and enduring openings known to the modern chessplayer. After decades of use, the razor-sharp move has recently had a strong revival, and this book brings together previously inaccessible new material on the opening. The authors examine all significant developments within all of the lines that encompass the Accelerated Dragon, including the intriguing Hyper-Accelerated Dragon and the obscure Semi-Accelerated Dragon. Numerous new ideas and improvement of existing theory (as well as many places of original analysis) make this essential for both Black and White players wishing to arm themselves in competitive play.
