Foxy Vol. 105 - Accelerated Dragon Part 2 [↓]
The Accelerated Dragon move-order limits White's choice of aggressive variations and that is why it is so popular with many strong players. On Volume Two of this series Andrew Martin examines White's choices apart from the Maroczy Bind:
1) Classical Variation
2) Lines with Nxc6
3) The Pseudo-Yugoslav attack.
The conclusion is reached that Black is in fine shape against all of these ideas. In 2010, The Accelerated Dragon remains an excellent counter to 1 e4.
