Accelerated Dragon – VECO

Accelerated Dragon Chess OpeningThe Accelerated Dragon is a chess opening for Black against 1.e4, characterized by the moves 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 g6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Bg7 (diagram).

As the name suggests, this chess opening differs from the standard Sicilian Defense Dragon variation by leaving out the d7-d6 move. Instead, Black gets to fianchetto his Dragon bishop and castle one move earlier.

In contrast to the “normal” Sicilian Defense Dragon Variation, Black avoids playing d7–d6, so that he can later play d7–d5 in one move if possible. The Accelerated Dragon is pretty flexible, however, as Black still retains the option of reverting back to traditional Dragon lines by playing …d6.
