Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-07-05  Ultra: Time trouble? Why does Najdorf resign?
Sep-07-05  aw1988: It looks like zugzwang, but I don't think so...
Sep-07-05  RookFile: Well, Bd3 wins a pawn.
Sep-08-05  aw1988: Fair point.
May-10-06  Resignation Trap: Najdorf sealed 41.Kf2, but phoned in his resignation next day. 41...Bd3 wins a pawn, leaves White with a weak d-pawn, and Black still has the two bishops.

  Fusilli: I would say that Najdorf erred with 25.b5 and his subsequent strategy to try to create attack on the kingside while leaving his queenside weaknesses to their fate.

White is soon going to lose the ♙b5. The ♙ on d6 looks pretty forlorn as well. But Najdorf must have been a little sulky to have given up so early.

This was game 3 of the match, it was played in New York on 8th April 1952 and the match score after it stood at 3-0 to Reshevsky with no draws.
