Poisoned Pawn, Huschenbeth's 10 Qd3
German GM introduced 10 Qd3 in poisoned pawn at World Cup. This line was used today in Magnus Invitational here:
[pgn][Event "Magnus Carlsen Invitational"]
[Site "chess24.com INT"]
[Date...|/pgn]
Any improvements for Black? This line can seem pretty dismal

C18 : 7...0-0 Winawer with 8...Nbc6/13. Qg4
I saw two key games in the US Championship, both played by Conrad Holt:
[pgn][Event "US Championships"]
[Site "Saint Louis USA"]
[Date "2015.04.10"]
[EventDate "2015.04.01"]
[Ro...|/pgn]
I have no engine running, but just by seeing, I think that 20...b4 was better instead of 20...Qg6, idea to open up the a-file and penetrate the queenside before letting White play g5 with effect.
Then he played it two rounds later:

[Site "Saint Louis USA"]
