A game that might be of interest, shure only rapid but it is between the 2700 + players GM Kamsky and GM Gashimov.  Since Kamsky seems to play this line often maybee we could call the line Kamsky variation Smiley.

I think the choice i a matter of taste since all moves are playable. In my view d5 eqalices at once but does not give either side that much winning chanses. I one faces a lowever rated person or need to play for a win Bd7 or Ng4 are candidate moves.

This Topic was moved here from Dragons [move by] MNb.
for two reasons:
1) The Classical Dragon thread were this was posted was already 7 years old;
2) JV's question is about the Classical Dragon without Nb3, which is an independent subject.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Classical Dragon with Qd2

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 6. Be2 Bg7 7. Be3 Nc6 8. O-O O-O 9. Qd2

In this position Rogozenkos (Sicilian Dragon 1 B70-B74) and Martins (Starting out - The Sicilian Dragon) first choice is d5, Ward (Winning With the Sicilian Dragon) advocates Bd7 and engine wants to play Rogozenkos second choice Ng4. So who is right?
