Back in the day the ultimate opening was the Najdorf Poisoned Pawn, constantly under debate by the world's best players. It is still seen today, though not oftn in elite tournaments. Our theory includes contributions fro blind tournaments and the World under-12 championship!

    8.Qd3 is what I play, it scores better than the standard Qd2, has less theory, is more unknown, and is just as aggressive. Often 2300- are out of book by 9.Qd3!

    The theory is about the capturing the pawn (Poisoned Pawn). There is another Megatheory for that too.

    This is an interesting idea but I don't see where it is of that much use because the game was drawn.  It definetly wasn't a winning move by any standard.  What if nobody takes the pawn?  Does that stop the whole theory?
