Najdorf: <By transposition, we have arrived at a Rubinstein System, and it just so happens that this has been my workhorse opening for many years! One of the ideas of this system, learned from grandmaster Akiba Rubinstein, is for Black to delay as long as possible the advance c7-c5, since after an eventual Nf3-e5 there would follow Nd7xe5 and Nf6-d7, with the possibility of occupying c5, whereas after c7-c5 Black does not have that prospect.>

From page 276 of Najdorf, Miguel 'Zürich 1953 - 15 Contenders for the World Chess Championship', 2012, Milford CT USA
