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 ...

Accelerated Dragon move order question
Some who knows what wrong with the move order 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6!?
