What are the pros and cons to this move order for the accelerated dragon ? I'm interested in it to avoid having to face the Rossolimo, one of my favourite lines as White. For 3.c3, d5 seems a good answer but I also have enjoyed 3.d4 cd 4.Qd4 as White on the two occasions I've played it. What views do more experienced accelerated dragons players have ?


I would strongly recommend consulting IM Andrew Greet's excellent book on the Accelerated Dragon; there is an excellent discussion of the pros and cons of the 2...g6 move order there, and good treatment of White's extra options against 2...g6.
