I'd be happy to score a draw if my opponent gets his rooks into my Royal Court (2nd rank for white and 7th for Black).
It is tough for you to win but I think you should move ROOK to F3,It is better trying draw then loosing.
My tactic is Rook to F3.
I find the accelerated dragon to be a difficult win no matter what i do. But, i play it anyway because i think it's stylish. Well played!
If you have difficulty with the accelerated dragon, just remember, Maroczy bind! (that means don't play the closed sicilian, play the open sicilian!)
How did you change name moon?
I saw 26...Ng5 instead of ...Rxa2. The if 27.a4 or something else, then 27...Nxh3 28.Rg1 moves 28...Rxg2 wins more material and may even mate. But i think white can still draw by chasing the rook for an exchange.
I think Carlsen points out the key error and also offers a good alternative (Ng5);
The reason for this should be more of less obvoius: with the rooks on the board you force white to be rather passive (and should white even attempt to trade then either Rxa2 or Rxg2 will pick up a pawn). In that position I was considering something like h5 (with the idea of h4 and getting a N-outpost at g3).
However, Ng5 looks promising, so lets consider this move in more depth:
