Hyper-Accelerated Dragon
I have been using the Hyper-Accelerated move order 1. e4 c5 Nf3 g6 to reach a normal Dragon while avoiding the 3. Bb5+ and 2...d6 3. c3 anti-sicilians. Firstly, are the Qxd4 lines really that bad for ...

Pterodactyl variation
What are the main differences between the Dragon/Accelerated as compared to the Pterodactyl (e4 c5 Nf3 g6!?)?  Are there any independent lines white should be aware of?  Or should white just continue ...
