Mar-03-07  jmrulez2004: Lesson number one in chess, two bishops and two knights with the aid of limited space of the opponents, and one special supporting chess, should always be able to create a mating net. as we all know two knights and two bishops connected in a certain way, is more powerful than a queen.

  FSR: Najdorf was a veritable chess god, and certainly should have been included in the 1948 World Championship match-tournament. I guarantee you that he would have done a lot better than Euwe.
Dec-15-08  WhiteRook48: wow, amazing mate!
Dec-22-08  zzzzzzzzzzzz: I wonder how sad that unknown amauter felt..he's up a Queen
Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: who is this NN anyway?
Oh, and <FSR> Nadjorf might have been better than Alekhine. (because Alekhine was too drunk.)
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: very great pun!
Feb-07-09  WhiteRook48: this is why NN did not reveal his name
Mar-11-09  WhiteRook48: 18 Nb8+!! is crazy
Apr-15-09  WhiteRook48: minor pieces have a lot of rights.
And that last post should say 18. NNb8+
Apr-15-09  MaxxLange: instructive classical chess walloping
Apr-15-09  blacksburg: 3...Nc6? not good, NN. 3...d5 is better.
Apr-15-09  MaxxLange: 3...exf4 would be better
May-08-09  sirfraix: I think that Najdorf did not overlook 11. Bxg6, just refused to play it because he wanted to play an attacking game, not to win mechanically.
Aug-18-09  tentsewang: Najdorf the great tactician is just incredible and a genius. He plays blindfolded and wins most of the game! He was just an another gifted player like Paul Morphy.

  Jim Bartle: I think it says Rd. 173. So was this part of a massive simul?
Oct-28-10  Elsinore: This game has a nice "A Night at The Opera" vibe to it.
Jan-11-11  meppi: yes 3. Nc6 is no good. White obtains a haloween-gambit type game where d4 and e5 can be played freely, but he doesn't even have to sacrafice a knight to get it!

  offramp: <Morfishine>, <Zanzibar>, yes, this is the game.
Jul-21-17  The Kings Domain: Fun game, like an avalanch crashing from the top.
Jul-21-17  algete: N.N. nunca aprende

Yes, at the same time and simultanaously.

  kevin86: I remember playing this game years ago (from the book). Who needs a Queen?

  AylerKupp: Is "rd" an abbreviation for "round"? If so, that was a long tournament!
Jul-21-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: Does anybody know the story of Najdorf's over-the-board simuls? I thought he held the world record in that when I was growing up, as well as for blindfold.

Wikipedia says he set and then broke his own blindfold simul record as a publicity stunt, hoping press coverage would tell his family where he went to escape the Nazis (namely Argentina). It also says that he played a >200 opponent simul in 1943.
