Sicilian Dragon

547 Characteristic Chess Puzzles

Authored by Bill Harvey, Robert Gamble

It is more fruitful to study the tactics of an opening you might encounter as White or Black than to study the knight fork, pin or skewer, one tactic at a time. When the type of tactic is provided with the puzzle, it is already half solved. Study the more common tactics found within an opening you face and you will come away with an understanding of the real dynamics of the opening and pick up tactics you can already use. The Dragon is a rich opening with sacrifices, counter-sacrifices and 'do or die' pawn storms - lots of tactics you would see nowhere else. What's more, nearly half of its games are decided in the first 30 moves, so if one falls behind in this opening, there is usually a swift conclusion. Here are nearly 550 chess puzzles to illuminate the Dragon.
