WYC 2007 U12b Kemer/Antalya (2.9), 19.11.2007

Analysis by hairulov and Fritz

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 Eng Chiam choose a sharp opening : Sicilian Dragon! 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0–0 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.Bc4 Bd7 10.0–0–0 Rc8 11.Bb3 a6

Personally i didn't like this a6 variation. In my opinion, this move is rather too slow for Dragon player. As you all know, in Sicilian Dragon especially Yugoslav variation, a tempo is crucial enough to decided the game.
