I feel that 12.Kb1 is a pretty good reason to play 10...Rb8 instead of Rc8.
or 11...Nxd4 instead of 11...Ne5
The dragon is so easy to refute. Heres another line refuted.
Actually, even 15...Bxf6 is equal I think...15...ef is also just fine but tbh I'm too lazy to check theory atm
Somehow, you are not posting your own games. Probably because you have yet to find someone who plays the Dragon against you without hanging a piece ?
I think he says "another line refuted" when he is clueless about what is happening- which may be most of the times.
For the record, this is no "refutation" of anything. Black hangs by a thread, but he is alive and well.
Even the way played in the Wei Yi game (15...ef6) Black is OK if he plays 22...Qe5 instead of 22...Rf7?!
No one is discussing this line?
i go 9.BC4
Both 10...Rb8 and 10...Nxd4 11.e5 Nf5 12.ef ef (and probably 12...Bxf6 too) are fine for Black.
