    Accelerated Dragon 201

    Welcome to Accerelated Dragon 201! The Accelerated Dragon is a fun and dynamic opening that I have used in my repertoire for several years. Black fianchettoes his dark square bishop to apply strong pressure against White's center. It is popular for beginners and Grandmasters alike for its solid positional foundation and active piece play. The Accelerated Dragon definitely helped me to become a Grandmaster, as it taught me chess through concepts rather than forced variations. I hope you will enjoy playing it as well! Good luck!
