The problem with the acc.Dragon,  in all the variations you struggle for a draw.
In the M.bind for example, It is hard to beat a lower rated white opponent. You have more counterplay in the caro-kan!
Plus few things  change in the theory of this opening. Looks like there is not a lot to dig so.... after 8 years playing it i gave it up for the real one ( at least i'm gonna have counterplay !!)

Good luck with it anyway

i will definitely subscribe to the dragon section if there are more accelerated dragons! The normal dragon does not interest me the slightest.  Undecided

The 2nd edition of Hansen and Nielsen's book on the Accelerated Dragon will be out at the end of July according to Komal Patel of Chrysalis Books (he is the direct mail manager).

I am pleased Chris has covered the Nc2 line recommended by Nielsen in Experts v the Sicilian in the last update. Chris more accelerated dragon games please. I appreciate the Dragon probably takes center stage but there are subscribers interested in the Dragon. Also any chance of you or someone else answering my question (see above)?

Hello! I am very interested in the accelerated dragon too. Do you happen to know when is nielsen/hansen's new book coming out? any other books i should look at for now?

some things i don't understand as a newbie: there seems to be certain situations where Black should trade off his important dark squared bishop. sometimes he also plays f6. and also sometimes black tries striking with f5. when should he do these things? I would have thought preparing b5 is the only realistic plan for black no?  ???

I understand that a new edition of "The Sicilian Accelerated Dragon: Improve Your Results with New Ideas in This Dynamic Opening" by Peter Heine Nielsen and Carsten Hansen is currently in preparation. Why have players such as Tiviakov given up the following line
1.e4 c5 2.f3 c6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 g6 5.c4 Nf6 6.Nc3 d6 7.Be2 Nxd4 8.Qxd4 Bg7. Is it because of the game Tiviakov played against Vasilios 1 Kotronias at the Gibraltar Masters on 4-2-2003 which he lost horribly?

SI 33.7.12 (B36)
  Vasilios 1 Kotronias  2573 
  Sergey Tiviakov  2635
