1. Sicilian Defense, Accelerated Dragon

Hello ChessMood Family! Welcome to video course "Accelerated Dragon."

About This Course

When with our team, we were thinking what the most active, tricky and at the same time the solid defence is against 1.e4, we came to a conclusion that it's Accelerated Dragon variation of Sicilian defense!

We understood that teaching you this variation would take a very long time from us, but we were okay with that. So we did huge work, researching all the tricks, best games, and made a step-by-step plan how to provide you all these information, to make it easy for you to digest and start to practice.

Below you can see some of the diagrams of this video course.

It took us many months, and we are very proud of the content that we are going to share with you here. We're sure, after learning all the lines and digesting all the ideas of this opening that we provide you here, you'll noticeably raise your ELO.

So fasten your seatbelts, let's go!

I finished the course finally. It took one week but I not only memorized all the ideas but I learnt the variations so well. I will apply ten times revision process and will master all lines and ideas. I can say must course for those who wanna fight against 1.e4.
