well, its a sicilian, so its a very dynamic opening. the advantages many of your opponents wont expect it. the actual advantage is that you can break with d5! easier. u have a nice dark square bishop and the light square bishop is easier to develop unlike the french. your center is strong. i play the accelerated dragon and i like it. the difference b/t the hyper and the accelerated is the move Nc6 and Bg7 i think. if Bg7 first then its hyper. i like Nc6 better. it controls the center better (e5) and limits ur opponents options. the disadvantage of the a-dragon is the macrocy bind with e4 and c4 but there are videos that show u how to by pass the bind. look at games of Sergei Tiviakov
