As an Open Sicilian player I'm also interested in the DVD. What does he recommend against the Classical Variation? His trademark systems with f3 instead of f4 (as also De la Villa in Dismantling the Sicilian)?

f3 plus Be3 is an old main line.

Be3 is the most common move in these structures but Bg5 is also a mainline, including systems where white plays the queen at e3. I have not played accelerated Dragon for over a decade but I think the point is to control the b6 square after any further Nd5 where black often has moved the a pawn to a6 or a5.

Me not being a GM would prefer 9.Bg5 0-0 10.Qd2. What exactly is the Bishop on e3 doing here? Isn't exploiting square d5 one of the main ideas of the Maroczy Bind?
Of course Black can chase the Bishop away with 9...h6 10.Be3 0-0 11.Qd2 Kh7 but then White has almost won a tempo.
  

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.

Sorry made a misspell. It is of course Viktor Bologan.

Am not sure how many discs it will be, but maybe 3 or 4 and only part 1 has been released yet. This disc covers Accelerated Dragon where he suggests Maroczy Bind, Classical sicilian with Bg5,  Lövental and after Qf6 he plays Qd2 and follows up with c4, Sveschnikov where plays the positional 9 Nd5 line and Be7 Bxf6 Bxf6 he plays c4, c4 is played vs Kalaschnikov, and Nc6 Qb6 Sicilian is covered.

"Bologan" means large rock in Romanian, so perhaps bologon is such an irregular shape.

How many sides does a Bologon have?

Victor Bologan perhaps.

I look forward to later volumes. Liked his autobio/best games, his Rossolimo text.

I have a copy of volume 1 that is about all open Sicilians with 2 .. Nc6 from whites point of view. If any Accelerated Dragon player has any question about a particular line I can answer it here in this thread. I have only taken a hasty look at Nf6 d6 Nxd4 system and I am not too impressed by one of the new suggestions. He advocates

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 g6 5. c4 Nf6 6. Nc3 d6 7. f3 Nxd4 8.Qxd4 Bg7 9. Be3 O-O 10. Qd2 a5 11. Na4 Nd7 12. Be2 Nc5 13. Nxc5 dxc5 14. Qxd8 Rxd8 15. Bxc5 Bxb2 16. Rd1 as better for white not sure why but he is a GM. Engines call it dead equal.
