    Thanks Danny. One question. If you play the position on against the computer in your link on the right. After white Nd3-e2, blacks Bd7xg4! Then if white e3-h6 and then g4xf3.  This sacrifice seems to ruin whites chances for a mating attack. Any thoughts? Also Flickers, LOL!!! Your funny.

    Daniel, this video is very timely and useful to me, but I am writing to say that this format, where you follow the evolution of an opening over time is very instructive and help us understand specific move choices ("why can't I do this?"). I highly encourage chess.com coaches to follow that approach when teaching an opening in video format. Thank you.

    Daniel, thank you for explaining the reasons behind the directional attack at the end of the video.  That was really helpful.

    Great video, I actually started to play the Dragon (Soltis variation) since a while, but I might need to reconsider. White's position seems to be a lot easier to play and it makes a lot of sense.

    I cant wait for the chinese dragon! If i hadn't seen the rest of the video I would said HUH??? to Rb8, very nice video.

    The explanation of the pawn having to be on the 5th rank before being considered a finger pointing in the direction of attack elucidated an important point for me. I have watched most of the videos on pawn structure and read articles and books on the subject and am finally beginning to understand it, thanx 2 u!
