As far as I know, the "standard" view is that 9. Nf5 Qxb2 10. Nxg7+ Kf8 11. Nd5 is promising/slightly better for White. 

As you will perhaps know, White usually plays (the order) 8. Qd2 instead of 8. Bc4 -- though I recall some cases of 8. Bc4 with the idea of Qe2.



Yes i known but the acc move order can force white into this line...

After 9.Nf5 Qxb2 10.Nxg7+ Kf8 11.Nd5 white seems a little better, but Macieja use a interesting defensive plan. In fact i use this line in blitz games with very good but it's only blitz...

When I tried the accelerated Dragon (before returning the Dragon proper) I have played a similar line that goes

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 g6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nc6 5. Nc3 Bg7 6. Be3 Nf6 7. f3 O-O 8. Bc4 Qb6

hello,
Somebody on this forum have experience in the Qb6 line ? i haven't found posts about it.

Moves: 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 Nc6 8.Bc4 Qb6!?

Some strong players like Macieja has used it, this line seems entairtening...
