  plang: 9..h5 was a relatively new idea at the time of this game; Seirawan:"I can guess what Miguel Najdorf is saying as he looks down on moves like Black's last (9..h5) in his namesake opening. "These young players! My God! They don't have the slightest idea of how to play chess"" 12..Nxd5 had been played by Gelfand in his win against Kovacevic at Belgrade 1997; 12..Bxd5 was new although maybe not an improvement as it greatly increases the effectiveness of White's white-squared Bishop. Shirov considered 18..Qc7? the decisive error recommending 18..Qb4 19 Qxb4..axb 20 f4..e4 21 Bf5..Rxa4 22 Bxe4 with unclear play. 25..Nxb5 was the best defense though after 26 fxg..Bxg7 27 Rg2 White still has a powerful attack.

  keypusher: <plang> Maybe Najdorf denounced them for plagiarism instead. From Geller vs Najdorf, 1953 after 13....h5:
