A lot of people know the Dragon well, but not a lot know the Accelerated Dragon very well.

Not sure which top GMs play it nowadays, but Malakhov and Tiviakov know it pretty well. Check out some of their games, write down the main themes that crop up, try it out in your games, go from there.

The Dragon setup works well against most Antis, but I'd suggest something different against the Alapin. 2...Nc6 3.Bb5 g6 is a  good line against the Rossolimo but doesn't have much in common with the Dragon.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

I have allways play the French. But I want to play some thing different. Schevenningen, Najdorf, Dragon. Really my first choice would be the Dragon but I am afraid that after reading some comments it seems black is against the ropes. But I wonder how many people under 2300 really know that much theory. Even in those lines where black is suffering doesn't he has chances to fight for an advantage? Most of the time when I play  the French against 2200 players they do not know theory after the move 10 or so. The schevenningen is alzo very good but white seems to have all the fun in a lot of positions although of course black has counterplay. I would like to hear your opinion. Thanks a lot
