I suggest you to study the subject : "Another nail in the coffin for 9 0-0-0 Nxd4 ?" (Read 2038 times)
It seems that with perfect play White is better in all lines, but that's true that after a little mistake Black has more winning chances
than after 9. 000 d5. I spent a lot of time searching improvements for Black in vain, the better i found is a worse ending in the line hxg6 fxg6.

Hey so in the main dragon line 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0-0 8.Qd2 0-0 9.0-0-0 ...  Dearing in Play the Sicilian Dragon gives 9..d5 as his primary recommendation.  He doesn't recommend Nxd4 for black, giving some lines where black gets into trouble.  Have any new or recent idea come into play which have revived this line (Nxd4)? I find it much smoother and lots more fun to play.  Anyone have a strong continuation for black in the sharper lines?
