Christine- Thanks for the comment. If only I had read it before my game began. Yes, Pawn drops are deadly and I am being punished for non-challant play inwhich I only realized too late, the wisdom of your words. Well, I think I knew already, the reality of what you said, but for some reason I overlooked the danger in my game with Jeremy. Anyway, I'll try to put up a fight. I think that the Dragon variaton will be even more dangerous to the one who permits tactical pawn drops.
