I don't know if anyone is reading this but this is where I'm going to keep my thoughts and ideas on the Sicilian Dragon opening-game. Currently it's the only opening I really enjoy and probably would stick to it (even though some players say it's dubious- well if Magnus Carlsen plays it, then I can). I'm also going to work on playing the accelerated and hyperaccelerated.
White wants to trade off black's dragon bishop with his dark-squared bishop. This usually occurs with Bh6. The general punishment for doing this so early results in white being a healthy pawn down:
I faced the above position in one of my 5-minutes blitz games but instead of 10...Nxd4, I tried the dubious 10...Nxe4!? This was a blitz game so it was an interesting risk. Such a move, really isn't worth much analysis and study as any strong player would not play 10. Bh6?. But I thought it was quite interesting as 10...Nxe4 did lead to some interesting positions:
I just wanted to point this out, because it could be an interesting game to play (the three variations) with a friend or so, as it moves out of mainline play and doesn't really get an edge to either players.
VS 0-0 Games
My biggest issue is playing against 0-0 in the Sicilian Dragon. I really enjoy the 0-0-0 Kingside-Queenside battle between Black and White. But I can't control what White does, so here are my games and thought against playing 0-0.

I am actually not sure if the move order is correct as this is from memory:
