Well done Jon. Over to you.
What? I didn’t answer the question...

However, I did know the answer, which is that the accelerated dragon is a name for a particular pattern of chess moves that is a variation of a standard opening defence.

My question is tangentially related, and is:

What is being referred to in the phrase “Like a g6?”

Bonus points are on offer if you can name the song and the band....

Clearly zero interest in this question!

A G6 is slang for a Gulfstream 650 private jet. It’s also a square in a chess board where the knight goes to in the “accelerated dragon” defence...

Someone else can set the next question.

Nah the knight goes to f6; pawn is on g6 and bish on g7. (Sorry, nerd alert! I'll get my coat ... and NHS glasses and anorak)

So not only was I listening to a hip hop song thinking it had a coded reference to a standard chess move in it, it was the wrong effing square!

I see your nerd, and raise it to dork...

I can only see a link in that they are all in May, and without checking assume they are all a Sunday. So F1 related?
