I recently wanted to add the english to my repertoire, just to try it out, just never felt sure of the fianchetto variation using it.

A reversed Sicilian dragon (potentially) for white, with a tempo up. Some players with black will play ..c5/..Nc6/..g6/..Bg7 against everything whites plays. It is a good 'system' for black to cut down theory if he wishes. Both the white and black side using this will lead to tactical and slow burning games.

Interesting... I have never thought to focus coverage on one color--I will have to experiment with that concept!
