  zydeco: Two great, great players battling for initiative.

It looks like Fine has beaten off the first wave of attack. Then Najdorf invests a second pawn with 20.b4!

21....Ng7 doesn't seem right -- the knight is well placed on e8 to defend f6 and g7. Maybe black should try 21....b5, giving back one pawn to develop his queenside. 21....f6 may also be worth considering.

26....e5 looks strong - giving back material to organize a counterattack - but Najdorf defends his kingside very easily. In retrospect, maybe 26....Rd8 is better, forcing white to prove his attack.
