Would anybody who knows a couple of the PP variations of the Paxton Defense be willing to post 2 or 3 of the main variations here? If so I would appreciate it very much.

Jonathon, Paxton Defense is one of 25 "basic lanidngs" fully and completely covered by Richard Pask in his classic "Key Landings", which is available now online on Marvin site in PDF format here :

Here is a published example:

[Comment: "http://www.itsyourturn.com/iyt.dll?action?stage=7&game=15300019926588"]
[Event "itsyourturn.com USA vs. World 8/04"]
[Date "2004.08.24"]
[Black "Dennis Pawlek"]
[White "JACK KX"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
1. 9-13 23-19 2. 5-9 22-18 3. 10-14 (W. Hellman's Paxton Defense; "Unnecessarily difficult for Black," R. Pask) 27-23 (= 9-13 23-19 10-14 27-23 5-9 22-18) 4. 6-10 (= 9-13 23-19 6-9 27-23 9-14 22-18 5-9) 25-22 5. 1-5* (R. Pask's Key Landing #17) 31-27 (many different moves have been played here) 6. 11-15 18-11 7. 8-15 23-18 8. 14-23 27-11 9. 7-23 26-19 10. 9-14 (2-6 J. Childers - T. Sheehan, 1994 I-D) 19-16 11. 12-19 24-6 12. 2-9 29-25 13. 4-8 28-24 14. 8-11 24-19 15. 3-8 19-15 16. 11-18 22-15 17. 8-12 15-11 18. 12-16 11-7 19. 16-19 7-2 20. 19-23 2-7 21. 23-27 32-23 22. 14-17 21-14 23. 9-27 7-10 24. 5-9 10-15 25. 9-14 15-19 1/2-1/2

The game has converged to P. Davis - H. Devlin, 1989 USA vs. GB Match, same opening, but different order of moves for most of the game.
