|Sep-03-07|| ||wolfmaster: Najdorf,amazingly, has defeated Boleslavsky twice and has never lost to him!|
|Sep-29-07|| ||pawnofdoom: The end of this game is weird. Can someone explain the ideas behind 35. ... Kb7 and 36. ... Re8 ?(instead of Kxb6)|
|Apr-02-10|| ||ozmikey: <pawnofdoom> White is threatening simply 36. Bxe7 winning, and there's no defence; the rook has to stay on the d-file defending the knight, discovered checks with the knight are no good because the rook on d2 is defended, 35...Bxc5 36. bxc5 wins (36...Kb7 37. Rxb6+), and even 35...Rc1 doesn't work after 36. Bxb6 Rxc6 37. Bxd8 Rxe6 38. Rxd5.|
So after 35...Kb7 36. Bxe7, 36...Kxc6 37. Bxd8 leaves Black just a piece down. 36...Re8 was worth a try, but after 37. Rxd5! there are no more chances; after 37...Rxe7 38. Rdc5 Black is a piece down as before (and White is threatening mate beginning with 39. Nd6+ to boot), 37...Nxd5 38. Bxd5 is obviously hopeless, and on 37...Kxc6 there is 38. Rc5+ with 39. Nd6+ next.
|Aug-12-11|| ||plang: Boleslavsky was probably not expecting 4 dxe. Instead of 8..Na6?!, 8..a5 seems more in the spirit of the opening. Instead of 11..Nac5?, 11..Ndc5 would have avoided Najdorf's queenside expansion with 12 b4! and 13 c5. 15..Nxb6?! was a desperate attempt for active piece play but 15..axb would probably have been better. 18..c5!? would have left the Black king very vulnerable but was probably better than what he played.|
|Oct-02-13|| ||jerseybob: Plang: Whether or not Boleslavsky expected 4.de he had to have been prepared to play that ending since this is the way the K.I.D. was often entered in those days. I agree with you about move 15: I also like 15..ab.|
