  Honza Cervenka: If 20...Rg7 (instead of 20...Qd8), then 21.Qf6 threatening 22.Re2+ or 22.Qxg7.
Aug-12-04  Eric6312: 15...Qb6 saves Black I think.

  MorphyMatt: (After 11... ♗b7)

"This is the standard position of the Najdorf and at the time this game was played, ♕g3 was the most popular move(it is regarded as the strongest today). Rather than follow the conventional line, Velimerovic uncorks an incredible piece sacrifice.

12. ♘d5!?

It was years before the correct reply was descovered, so this was certainly an excellent practical bet!

12... ♘xd5

One can hardly criticize Ljubojevic for not finding the difficult refutation. Readers should refer to a book on opening theory for full details, but the main line runs 12... exd5 13. ♘f5 ♔f8 14. ♕g3 dxe4 15. ♗xe4 ♗xe4 16. ♖xe4 ♕c5! 17. ♗h6 ♘xe4! 18. ♕xg7+ ♔e8 19. ♕xh8+ ♘f8 20. ♗xf8 ♗xf8 21. ♕xh7 ♖c8 and Black has the advantage. The move played appears natural, but there is a stunning surprise in store.

13. exd5 ♗xg5

More or less orced, as {13... Bxd5 (13... Nf6 14. Bxf6 Bxf6 15. Be4 e5 16. fxe5 Bxe5 17. Nc6 0-0 18. Nxe5 dxe5 19. Qh3 h6 20. d6 is also very good for White) 14. Qxd5! exd5 15. Rxe7+ Kf8 (15... Kd8 16. Rxf7+ Kc8 17. Bf5 wins) 16. Bf5 h6 (or 16... Rd8 17. Be6 f6 18. Rf7+ Ke7 19. Rxg7 fxg5 20. Bf7+ Ke7 21. Bh5+ Kf6 22. Rf7#) (continued onto next post)

17. ♖xd7 ♕c4 18. ♗e7+ ♔g8 19. ♗xd6 ♕xa2 20. ♘c6 gives white a winning position.

14. Rxe6+!

This further rook sacrifice is the only way to maintain the attack's momentum. After 14. ♘xe6 (14. fxg5 ♘e5 15. ♕h3 ♗xd5 16. g6 0-0-0 also favors ♗lack) 14... fxe6 15. ♕h5+ ♔f8 16. fxg5 ♘e5 17 g6 (17. ♗xh7 ♕c4 18 b3 ♕f4+ 19. ♔b1 ♔e7) 17... h6 18. ♖xe5 dxe5 19. ♖f1+ ♔e8 20. ♖f7 ♕c5 21. ♕xe5 ♗xd5 22. ♕xg7 ♖f8 White runs out of steam.

Once again Black does not have much choice, e.g.:

15. ♘xe6!

Once again White chooses the most dangerous move. After 15. ♕h5+ g6 16. ♗xg6+ hxg6! (not 16... ♔e7 17. ♕xg5+ ♘f6 18. ♘f5+! ♔d7 19. dxe6+ ♔c6 20. ♖xd6+ ♕xd6 21. ♘xd6 ♔xd6 22. ♕e5+ ♔c6 23. b4 ♘d5 24. ♗e4 and White wins) 17. ♕xh8+ ♘f8 18. ♘xe6 ♗xf4+ 19. ♘xf4 (19. ♔b1 ♕f7 20. ♖f1 ♗xd5 21. ♖xf4 ♕xe6 22. ♕xf8+ ♔d7 consolidates the extra piece) 19... 0-0-0 White does not have enough for the piece. After the text-move Black faces a crucial choice: where should he move his queen?

15.... ♕a5?!

White's main threat is to play his rook to the e-file, lining up against the enemy king, which is trapped in the center. Hence this move appears most natural, since it not only prevents ♖e1 but also attacks the a2-pawn. However, in such a position it is dangerous to rely on such general principles. It turns out that the alternative 15... ♕b6! is more accurate. The queen is more actively placed on b6 and a later ... ♕e3+ would prevent ♖e1 with a gain of tempo. In response to this White may try:

1) 16. fxg5? g6 17. ♖f1 ♘e5 18. ♕f6 ♖g8 favors Black - the e5-knight is an excellent defensive piece.

2) 16. ♖e1? ♗f6 17. ♕h5+ g6 18. ♗xg6+ hxg6 19. ♕xg6+ ♔e7 20. ♘g7+ ♗e5 21. fxe5 dxe5 22. d6+ ♔d8 23. ♘e6+ ♔c8 24. ♕g7 ♖d8 25. ♘xd8 ♕xd8 and White has run out of pieces.

3) 16. ♕h5+ g6 and now:

3a) 17. ♗xg6+ ♔e7 18. ♕xg5+ ♘f6 19. ♗h5! (The alternatives all win for Black: 19. ♗f5 ♖ag8, 19. ♘d4 hxg6 20. ♕xg6 ♘e8! 21. ♖e1+ ♔d8 22. ♘e6+ ♔c8 and 19. ♖e1 ♕f2 20. ♔d1 hxg6 21. ♕xg6 ♖ag8 (continued onto next post)

3b) 17. ♕xg5 ♕e3+ 18. ♔b1 ♔f7
(18... ♘e5 19. ♕f6 ♘f7 20. ♘c7+ ♔d8 ♘e6+ is an immediate draw) with a final branch:

3b1) 19. ♕h6 ♖ag8! (if Black plays 19... ♗xd5 White can at any rate force a draw by 20. ♕g7+ ♔xe6 21. f5+ gxf5 22. ♗xf5+ ♔xf5 23. ♖f1+ ♔e4 24. ♕g4+ ♔e5 25. ♕g7+) 20. ♘g5+ ♔e8 21. ♕h4 ♔d8 22. ♖e1 ♕b6 23. ♘f7+ ♔c8 24. ♘xh8 ♖xh8 25. ♗xg6 ♕d8!, forcing an exchange of queens, after which Black has a large advantage.

Previous annotators have dismissed Black's position is lost following 15... ♕a5?!, but I believe that the fatal error only occcurs later. What is clear, however, is that after 15... ♕b6! White is struggling for a draw whereas after 15... ♕a5?! it is black who must play (very) accuratly to save the game.

16. ♕h5+ g6 17. ♕xg5

Not 17. ♗xg6+? ♔e7 18. ♕xg5+ ♘f6 and the attack falters.

18. ♖d2!

The rook finds an alternative path to the e-file. It is astonishing that White, a full rook down, can afford this relatively leisurly manoeuvre, but Black's king cannot easily flee from the e-file.

Jun-06-07  wolfmaster: The game or MorphyMatt?
Premium Chessgames Member
  GreenArrow: In 1972 Nd5 and Rxe6 might have been spectacular, but now it has been proved to be just wrong. Kasparov disagrees with Nunn's analysis, instead praising 12...Nd5! Here white's attack runs out of steam, whereas 12...exd5 gives him a continuing attack. 14. fxg5 is just plain worse, so 14.Rxe6 is more or less forced but the known refutation is ...Qb6 (aiming at e3) instead of Ljubojevic's ...Qa5 and the attack doesn't work. Therefore 12.Nd5? is more or less redundant now in favour of 12.Qg3 when after 12...b4 (forced) you get to play 13.Nd5 anyway, where it is correct.
Premium Chessgames Member
  GreenArrow: <wolfmaster> Well MorphyMatt's analysis is entirely plagarised from 'The World's Greatest Chess Games' by Nunn, Emms and Burgess, so presumably the game
Nov-24-10  rwbean: "The World's Great Chess Games" is from 1998 ... they say 18 ... Nc5 is the only move, now any program at all finds 19. Nxc5 dxc5 20. d6 Qd8 21. Re2+ Kf8 22. Qh6+ Rg7 23. Re7 and Black is dead (over +2 in Rybka 4 within seconds)! So it was a waste of time typing out all that analysis, sorry.

18 ... Kf7 seems to draw, contrary to WGCG, after 19. Re2 Nf6 20. Qh6 Ke7 21. Nd4+ Kd8 22. Qh4 Rf8 23. Ne6 Kd7 24. Qh3, then instead of 24... Rfb8 in the book, when White actually has a mate in 11 with 25. Ng5, Rybka suggests 24... Rfe8 25. Ng7+ Kc7 26. Nxe8+ Rxe8 27. Rxe8 Nxe8 28. Qxh7 Kb8 29. b3 (to prevent Qe1#) Bxd5 30. Qxg6 Bc6 and Black seems to get a perpetual check one way or another.

  YoungEd: This is an exciting game, to be sure! One thing that strikes me toward the end of the game is how White's g-pawn is so important. It's completely unassailable even though nothing defends it! A piece of chess beauty, in a way.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Breunor: Stockfish agrees with rwbean; 18 Kf7 is even:

1) =0.00 (24 ply) 18...Kf7 19.Re2 Nf6 20.Qh6 Ke7 21.Nc5+ Kf7 22.Ne6

18 Nc5 is not a saving move, as Honza said years ago:

1) +2.76 (20 ply) 19.Nxc5 dxc5 20.d6 Qd8 21.Re2+ Kd7 22.Re7+ Kc8 23.Qxc5+ Kb8 24.Rxh7 Ra7 25.Be4 Rf8 26.Qxa7+ Kxa7 27.Rxb7+ Ka8 28.Rd7+ Kb8 29.Rxd8+ Rxd8 30.Bxg6 Rxd6 31.f5 Rd8 32.g4 Rh8

18 Nf8 Is considered about the same:
1) +2.52 (22 ply) 19.Nxf8 Qd8 20.Nxh7 Qxg5 21.fxg5 O-O-O 22.Nf6 Rg7 23.Re2 Kc7 24.Re8 Bc8 25.h4 Bd7 26.Re3 Rf8 27.Kd2 Rff7 28.Kc3 Kd8 29.Kd4 Re7 30.Rxe7 Kxe7 31.g4 Kd8 32.a3 Kc7

The computer gives 12 Nd5 a negative score:

1) -0.82 (24 ply) 12...exd5 13.Nf5 Bf8 14.exd5+ Kd8 15.Nd4 Qc5 16.Nb3 Qb6 17.Bf5 Kc7 18.Bh4 b4 19.Kb1 Kb8 20.c4 bxc3 21.Qxc3 a5 22.Bxd7 Nxd7 23.Re8+ Ka7 24.Rxa8+ Kxa8 25.Nxa5 Qc5 26.Qd2 Qb5 27.Bf2 Qa4 28.b3 Qe4+ 29.Ka1 h6 30.Nxb7

I think the benefit of moves like this is that when playing a human and not a computer, this kind of initiative can be powerful. 12 Qg3 is listed as even.

However, I don't think we can say 12 Nd5 is 'correct'

However, white gets the advantage after ... Nxd5:

1) +1.10 (18 ply) 13.exd5 Nc5 14.Bxe7 Qxe7 15.Nf5 Qf8 16.b4 Na4 17.Qe3 O-O-O 18.dxe6 fxe6 19.Nd4 Nc3 20.Nxe6 Qf6 21.Nxd8 Rxd8 22.Bxh7 Nxd1 23.Kxd1 Bxg2 24.Qa7

In looking at some of the moves, though, I find Stockfish somewhat unreliable; it gives a score, then after the next move in the original sequence, the score is drastically different. Of course I can run the computer longer, but with such complex positions, even the computers seem to have trouble.
