    I think that traps and zaps book only concentrates on e4 openings.

    My favourite quote

    When teaching chess my favourite quote is:

    That chess is like life and marriage i.e., marry in haste and regret in leisure.

    Admittedly most of the students look at me and wondering what I am on about, but the few maturer ones will catch it and give a big smile.

    Nowadays one can resign and start a new game with minimal fuss.

    I got that book for christmas from my Uncle... it says at the start that it is mostly, well all e4..e5 starting moves -> but some of the examples at the start are just silly..no one would make them moves. But there is some good mantras... like "bring your Queen out early, lose your Queen early"... and other ones but i forget them I will have to go find where i left it.

    Anyone like to hazard a guess as to how this one could be worked into the marriage analogy?

    Do you mean getting a divorce and re-marrying? The Muslims can, they only need to say "I divorce you" three times -- three strikes and you are out.

    Is it true that (maybe at the highest level) the Sicilian Dragon variation has become almost redundant, or is getting beaten too often.

    Well it could be if you bring your queen out your missus will kill him/her? Whereas after the missus is about 60 she wont care and will be happy to be left alone

    Note that this question was written four years ago.

    After Carlsen's games (especially) I don't think many people would be asking this question anymore!
