Aug-20-04  misguidedaggression: This is common in the dragon as well.
Aug-20-04  sneaky pete: Uncle pete's "believe it or not":
Najdorf witnessed this game and said to himself: Aha, if I play the other rook pawn on move 5, it's 7... axb5 and wins. That's how the now famous Najdorf variation was born.
Aug-20-04  tomh72000: I will guess "false" :)
Aug-20-04  misguidedaggression: The whole point of the Najdorf is to prevent moves like Bb5/Nb5, which can often be a nusance tactically in the sicilian. (Take this game for example.) So even if Najdorf had never seen this game -- which is probably the case :) -- There is a bit of truth to sneaky pete's anticdote.

  Benzol: Wasn't Sooky the one who put the kettle off that Polly put on?
Oct-10-06  dabearsrock1010: after watching games like this sometimes i think i should just buy a book which just explains a bunch of cheap traps and win games like that
Jun-28-15  joddon: why don't players ever see the bloody counter.....they just pick moves from books and play them , repeat them as if every thing will work out the way it does in the books....HELL be a chess player u have to be able to look at the board!!!
