  Chessical: A neat win by player of the day Neverov as Black in a Sicilian Najdorf

Polgar's plan to storm the K-side an play <14.0-0-0> seems overambitious.

After <19...d5!> Neverov is clearly winning.

The end is: 21...Bc5 22.Qc4 Ba3+ 23.Kd2 Qf2+ 24.Qe2 e3+ 25.Kd3 Bg6+

  hesyrett: By move 14, White's already busted, a ♙ down with a pinned ♘ and no safe place for her ♔.  11.g4 dropped a ♙, but even at move 11 Black stood better.  11.♗b3 just provokes 11...♘c5; perhaps White's best is 11.♕e2 Δ 12.♘d5, but the whole scheme with ♗c4 looks too ambitious.  Standard is an early ♗d3 to shore up the e-♙, followed by O-O and ♕e1-h4 with K-side pressure.
May-04-16  Rabbi T: Amsterdam Variation is not the most dangerous weapon in the Sicilian Defense for black, because 6. f4 is not conducive to the development of the figures?and create weak dark squares on the kingside, which became particularly clear after the exchange of the white dark-squared bishop . and it is quite natural that the black dark-squared bishop played a crucial role in this game. I believe 8. a4 and 14. O-O-O is a direct route to the loss. Valeriy Neverov beautifully finished this game.
