Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-29-09  Wayne Proudlove: Well, I've decided to learn about the Sicilian Defence because it's so solid and popular so I started with the Najdorf by memorizing the opening moves and reading a few paragraphs on why Black plays a6 preparing e5 and what goes wrong if he plays e5 first, and how Kasparov likes to play e6 instead. Then I fell asleep on the couch for the rest of the day and now on having awoken I feel I have made a real stride in my chess ability, although does it really matter because I don't even think the chessplaying girl I'm trying so hard to impress likes me anyways, but then again I really do love the game.
Jun-12-10  Xeroxx: Nice story man.
Jun-12-10  MaxxLange: Around here, all the patzers are trying to play the Svesh or the Kan, you don't see so many Dragons or Najdorfs
Jun-12-10  Cibator: Not surprised <MaxxLange>. It's too easy to get smashed up in short order playing Black in those variations.
Jan-29-11  Yodaman: I like how white plays 11. Kh8 and then black copies with 11...Kh1 even though it doesn't seem like a great move.

Then white goes on to win using black's king on h1 to pin the rook.

Just because a lot of top players make these king moves into the corner from time to time doesn't mean that it's always a good move!

Dec-17-16  RookFile: Tartakower definitely had ideas in the opening. Here he is playing Najdorf variation at an early date.
Dec-17-16  JimNorCal: What is the correct spelling of Dewhurst?
Isn't there a controversy over this?
Dec-17-16  Granny O Doul: <JimNorCal> I don't know that there is, but let's start one.

Of course it's "Dewhurst". What the hell else would it be, dummy?

Dec-21-16  JimNorCal: <GrannyO>

"The popular rendering of his name as “Frederick Dewhurst Yates” is erroneous. ... 'Dewhurst' is a spelling mistake now widely copied in the literature."

The gravestone gives Dewhirst.

  offramp: Dewhurst was a very popular string of butcher shops in the UK for many many years. Their popularity may have influenced the way writers spelled Yates's middle name.
