Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-15-08  zev22407: A fine attack by Najdorf
Mar-15-08  Ideefixe: Every time Sammy pushed his d pawn, he worsened his position. Let's stick to the first time he did that, since till then he was standing fine. So what other option do we have besides 14..d5? 14...Nc6 seems to suggest itself, but I would prefer 14...h6, since 15.f5 is exactly the kind of move that makes me worry. A posible line could be 14...h6 15.e5 dxe 16.fxe Nxe5 17.Nxe5 Qxe5 18.Bxh6 Bxh6 19.Qxh6 Ng4. Now the black bishop controls the more important h1-a8 diagonal than the b1-h7 of the white bishop, the black knight is also better placed than the white one and more important the initiative is with black. This is probably a draw, but it will be more amusing to play on for black. The arising position is the following:

I can't understand what made Sammy play 14...d5, if he was in a frame of mind to push one of his central pawns 14...e5 was much better, leading after the exchange on e5 to an equal position.
