1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Qc7 occurred to me some while back as an interesting line to play. I indeed played it in the Rhein-Main Open, Bad Homburg, but made an inaccuracy and though I later salvaged the game it was not a brilliant acheivement. Either White enters a Najdorf where he had played an inferior line eg Be2,  or a Dragondorf after 6. Ndb5 Qa5 7. Bd2 Qd8 8. Be3 a6 9. Nd4 g6. There is also the chance of playing 9...Ng4 as Black, and then 10. Bc1 g6 11. f3 Nf6 (...Ne5!?) 12. Be3 returning to a later Dragondorf, while having eliminated White's quiet lines.

The main worry with this line is 6. Bg5, which everyone keeps playing on the internet, and then after ...Nbd7, 7. Bb5 e6 8. Bxf6. There is a small piece of analysis attached, but it seems fairly playable as Black. Amazingly there are less than 10 games in the database.
