  vonKrolock: <18...♗b5> Now 19.♘d2 was the only alternative for white, but then the attack with a6-a5 etc will soon become overwhelming, for instance: 20.a4 bxa3 21.bxa3 a4 22.♗a2 d5! etc analysis diagram

May-11-11  qqdos: This is an interesting attempt by Ljubo to adopt the (Sozin) Velimirovic Attack formation against the Najdorf. The game is analysed at length in the 2004 book by Arizmendi and Moreno Mastering the Najdorf, pp.182-7. The position after after Black's 17th move was repeated in Perenyi vs P. Szekely, Magyarorszag 1974 (0-1) - see B86-87 Monograph, p.67 note 312.
