What specifically defines an open Sicilian vs closed?
What defines a dragon and an accelerated dragon?
Against kings-pawn openings I always play the Sicilian, but I have no idea what versions my openings transpose into.
You might look into Tchex's thread about the accelerated Dragon. Thread 128336
I'm sure some more astute players will illustrate the classical, yugoslav etc. dragons.
Closed vs open, mostly is if white plays e4, Nf3 ,d4, or lines such as 3.c3 or 3.Nc3 as far as I know, which is very little. 😞
