Manfreud, I once used to be a member of the Pittsburgh Chess Club and played in dozens of tournaments there over the space of approximately four years, then infrequently thereafter. The last guy I ever played in a rated game was an expert level player named Jeff Schreiber. When Jeff had Black, he REFUSED to ever play the Dragon Sicilien against e4, because he knew how much trouble the Yugoslav Attack you mention can be and he feared it. I play the Sicilian myself, but usually not the Dragon. I prefer to keep the fight in the middle or on the queenside. Although as a low rated player, I usually lost in Sicilians, they are more fun to play in than a more closed game is, so if I ever get back playing a lot I will play some Sicilians. When I finally start playing here, you will see me play it for sure.
