When you are done with this, watch the MUCH shorter video for review: vimeo.com/58912137

This is the Qa5 variation in the Accelerated Dragon. White successfully wins with the Qf3-Qf6 idea. Black should play f6 to defend and have good winning chances. This video moves along kind of slow because I am annotating the game while recording. The accompanying video is about 48 seconds with just the moves, and arrows (so the student can guess the upcoming moves). Usually these videos aren't too interesting for non-students. They are mainly used for review. An advanced student can learn some new ideas from them.

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 g6 5. Nc3 Bg7 6. Be3 Nf6 7. Bc4 Qa5 8.

It is better to play 15...f6!
