The Dragon is one of the most thrilling chess openings and a favourite of attacking players. But can this sharp and provocative system still be played in the modern era? GM Gawain Jones says “Yes!”

In this two-volume work, the world’s strongest Dragon specialist guides you through the Black repertoire he has played successfully against world-class opposition. Drawing on his deep understanding as a lifelong Dragon exponent, Jones explains the key concepts and supports his recommendations with cutting-edge analysis.

This volume deals with the 9.Bc4 and 9.g4 variations of the Yugoslav Attack.


GM Gawain Jones has been a member of the English Olympiad team since 2008. He was Commonwealth Champion in 2011, British Champion in 2012, and has a peak rating (so far!) of 2671.
