Thoughts on the Accelerated Dragon

HolographWars

To combat the Sicilian, I play the Grand Prix Attack, Nc3 followed by f4. It is a great shortcut and led to many nice victories for me.

Does it go like this?

 

5... g6. Sicilian Dragon. 

4... g6 Accelerated Dragon

2... g6 Hyper Accelerated Dragon

HolographWars

yes, 5...g6 is considered dubious today due to 6.Nxc6

Pretty much yes.

Isn't 2...Nc6 common for the Accelerated Dragon?
