I am trying to collect a list of Sicilian Dragon classic games, which every dragon player must be aware. I would really appreciate if you could share some classics and also highlight the most important move/part in the game.

I am okay with either color winning. The two games where the dragon kills the Yugoslav that immediately spring to mind are Kasparov's dragon vs Viswananthan Anand in 1995 WC

Fischer - Larsen, Portoroz 1958 also known as "Slaying the Dragon" in his book, 60 Memorable games is recommended required reading.

The opening moves for the dragon, accelerated and hyperaccelerated dragon may be found in Parimarjan Negi's e4 vs. the Sicilian: Vol 2.


Karpov-Kortchnoi from the 1974 Candidates Final which turned out to decide the World Champion is a famous and appealing dragon game and part of chess history.
