  Fusilli: 11.b5 looks ugly, damaging white's queenside pawn structure and leaving the c5-square to Reshevsky's knight...probably the reason why Najdorf lost this game.

  Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 13 Be2 is 13 Bd3 attacking the h7 pawn a third time and so compelling Black to disturb his King side pawns
