Here are some thoughts, Nxd4 is the wrong move order since white does not have to castle!

[Event "?"]
[Site "?"]
[Date "????.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "New game"]
[Black "?"]
[Result "*"]
[PlyCount "32"]

About the final position, white has no advantage at all. The lighsqured Bishop is a weak piece bad Bishop since it is on the same colour as the d5 pawn and most other pawns while blacks knight can manouver.

But it is true that white has space advantage and that black has a backward pawn. However,  the final position has always been considered equal.

Also, I can not resist to post one of my latest Dragons in the g4 line

[Event "Friendly Game, 2m + 1s"]
[Site " Café"]
[Date "2009.12.27"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Guest602035"]
[Black "Tomas Bragesjö"]
[Result "0-1"]
[ECO "B76"]
[Annotator "Tomas,Bragesjo"]
[PlyCount "72"]
[EventDate "2009.12.27"]
[TimeControl "120+1"]

B76: Some ideas on 9.g4

I'm looking for some interesting lines for black after 9.g4. (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cd4 4.Nd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 00 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.g4)

-the line 9...Bxg4 looks interesting maybe for a quick game but not for a long:
10.fxg4 Nxg4 11.Nb3! a5 is the main line (d5!? is Rybka suggestion and after 12.exd5 Bxc3 13.bxc3 Nxe3 14.Qxe3 Qxd5 15.Rg1 Rac8 black have some compensations but I prefer white) 12.a4 Nxe3 13.Qxe3 Nb4 14.000 Rc8 15.Kb1! Qc7 16.Nd4 Qc5 17.Qd2 and white are better, I don't see ideas for black, but white're going to play Bh3 and Rhf1

-9..Bd7 looks too slow if white play 10.h4!

-9...Nxd4 10.Bxd4 Be6 is the main line
11.000 Qa5 12.a3 Rab8 (Rfc8? 13.h4 Rab8 14.h5 b5 15.hxg6 fxg6 16.Qg5! Bd7 17.Nd5! +/-) 13.h4 b5 14.Nd5 Qxd2+ 15.Rxd2 Bxd5 16.exd5 += White have the bishop pair, and are going to play g5 and Bh3

Do you see something better than this endgame ?
