I play the Accelerated Dragon and so the Maroczy Bind is bound to pop up here and there. This is the key position:
Black to move
The best moves here are d6 or Nxd4. Their statistics are virtually the same. But d6 is played more than twice as often as Nxd4. Does this mean it's a better move? My book, Chess Openings for Black, Explained recommends d6 as well. I'm not quite sure what the advantage is for playing d6, after all, it gives White more options. Nc2 is especially troublesome. Is there some advantage to being forced to memorize more White lines?
What do you guys think?
BTW: I hate not being able to incorporate more positions in one post.
