Hi there,
sometimes you play an opening for a long time, but you still don't get it:
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cd4 4.Nd4 Nc6 5.Nc3 Qc7 is well-known, then my far weaker opponent played 6.Ndb5 Qb...

6. Bg5 7... h6 vs. 7... Qb6??
It seems like 7... Qb6 is just a better move order than the Delayed Poisoned Pawn move order: 7... h6. 7... h6 just allows White to go 9. a3! Which has been doing well at the top level lately. 7... Qb...

Hi All,
