|Aug-17-11|| ||SonOfSteel: Once in a rated event, I steered into this variation, but my opponent caught me unprepared with:
7... Nxe4 8.Qf3 Nc5 9. b4 Nb7. The best I came up with was 10. c4 e6 11. cxb5
exd5 12. bxa6 Qe7+ 13. Be3 Nd8 14.Bb5+ Bd7 15. Bxd7+ Qxd7 16. b5...|
and black eventually gave back the piece for two pawns and later lost by giving me
attacking chances against his king. But I always felt there should have been something
better for white. After all, this line was "Fischer approved".
Well, thanks to all the contributions here, a light finally went on. I found a move
which (unless I missed the obvious, AGAIN) seems to keep black bound & gagged indefinitely!
10...f6? 11.Bd3! fxg5 12.Qh5+ g6 13.Bxg6+ hxg6 14.Qxg6+ Kd7 15.Qe6+ Ke8 16.Nf6#
10...h6 11.Qh5 g6 12.Qh4 f6 13.Bxf6...±
10...g6 11.Bd3! f6 12.Nxf6+ exf6 13.Bxf6...±
Please review and advise. Thx
|Sep-29-11|| ||keithbc: I find it just amazing that my 60 mem games and kasparov's very detailed analysis does not even consider 7...Nxd5 - did they forget such a move was playable. Just amazing omission|
|Sep-29-11|| ||Shams: <keithbc> I think the suggested move is regarded as dubious. |
E Romanov vs M Perunovic, 2005
|Sep-29-11|| ||keithbc: dubious it may be but NO mention of this in the aforementioned analysis - striking!|
|Sep-29-11|| ||Shams: <keithbc> Fischer and Kasparov aren't going to explicate every dubious sideline in the opening.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||Everett: Fischer's positional power plays are such a pleasure to play through.|
|Oct-04-11|| ||HeMateMe: It looks like Fischer is winning after move 15. Is the variation used here "The Adams Attack" a retro nod to U.K. Michael Adams, or is there a different Adams?|
|Oct-04-11|| ||TheFocus: Weaver Adams|
|Oct-05-11|| ||FSR: Weaver Adams: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weaver... I have a couple of copies of his book "White to Play and Win." Pretty ridiculous stuff. A bunch of his games against not-very-strong players are included as illustrative games, but they obviously do <not> constitute best play by Black.|
|Oct-05-11|| ||Everett: Personally I am very fond of the positional approaches vs the Najdorf. Mickey Adams and, more recently, Kamsky, have played some enjoyable games in various lines designed to limit counterplay.|
|Oct-08-11|| ||keithbc: they (Kasp and Fischer) discussed more obscure moves - that is my point!|
|Oct-08-11|| ||keithbc: In my 60 memorable games, Fischer gives alternatives to 7...Bb7 (e6, Nbd7) but misses the obvious (for the reader anyway) of just taking the knight (Nxd5) after the recapture exd5 there is no win and black is still inthe game so why did black (a) not play it and (b_) was it not even mentioned. I still get no satisfactory answer to this. May have to write to Ray Keene or someone. Maybe EVERYONE missed this opportunity?|
|Oct-08-11|| ||Dionysius1: Maybe the b5 pawn is a bit weak for that. I'm not great at thinking these things through but what if instead of recapturing the N with the e pawn white takes the b5 pawn with the N or B - then the Q can recapture the N with an attack on the rook. Is that the start of anything?|
|Aug-29-12|| ||TheFocus: This is game 40 in Fischer's <My 60 Memorable Games>.|
|Nov-12-12|| ||Fanques Fair: Once I played this incredible variation on-line : 7- g4 , b4 8- g5 , bxc3 9- gxf6 , cxb2 , 10- fxg7 , bxa1 = Q 11- gxh8=Q ... We have now 4 queens at move 11, which is extraordinay !|

|Mar-09-14|| ||Ziguratt: Before the start of the match Bobby Fischer had said that he would beat Miguel Najdorf in 25 moves,
And he did it in 24!!!!!!!|
|Mar-09-14|| ||whiteshark: Hej <Ziguratt>!
Is that you: User: Ziggurat eller också User: Zigurat ?
|May-19-14|| ||Howard: I'm almost sure of reading a couple times that Fischer in his book My60MG overlooked around the 10th move a much better move on Black's part that Najdorf overlooked. The late Larry Evans mentioned it in a 1986 column in Chess Life, plus Soltis I believe also did so.|
Anyone know what it might have been ?
|Oct-08-14|| ||SpiritedReposte: Fischer crushes Najdorf in his namesake opening playing 6. h3!!? |
Wonder if it caught him by surprise.
|Mar-02-16|| ||kubbybulin: This is chess' answer to Ruth calling his shot.|
|Dec-20-16|| ||piroflip: "The Adams Attack" a retro nod to U.K. Michael Adams?????????|
The game was played in 1962!!!!!!!!!
|Dec-20-16|| ||keypusher: <piroflip>
No. This guy.
Weaver Warren Adams
In any case, it shouldn't be news to anyone that chess openings are rarely named for whoever played them first. Najdorf wasn't the first person to play the Najdorf, either.
|Dec-20-16|| ||Howard: Exactly ! I just made the point last week, in fact, that Pal Benko didn't "invent" the Benko Gambit.|
|Dec-20-16|| ||RookFile: Fischer rolls up a world class player, playing his own version of the Sicilian, in 24 moves. Such was the power of Fischer's opening prep.|
