Sicilian Dragon Variation. Black fiachettoes its dark square bishop along the h8–a1 diagonal. White's most dangerous try against the Dragon is the Yugoslav Attack, characterised by 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0-0 8.Qd2 Nc6, when both 9.0-0-0 and 9.Bc4 may be played. This variation leads to extremely sharp play and is ferociously complicated, since the players castle on opposite wings and the game becomes a race between White’s kingside attack and Black’s queenside counterattack.
