Kasparov is right, the ...h7-h5 idea has brought the Dragon back from the dead. Ten years after he shared his thoughts on that White is still looking for answers.

The Karjakin-Carlsen game shows White trying to go all the way, only to see his own position ruined. On contrast, Nepo attempted a much quieter strategy against the young Chinese star Wei Yi and failed miserably. Of course, White can try again, but the renewed interest in alternative plans is understandable. Nakamura won the principled battle against Robson in the 9.g4 line. Maybe, the truth can be found there.
