   N.O.F. NAJDORF has kibitzed 35 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-15-17 Karpov vs L Havrdova, 1998
N.O.F. NAJDORF: This game reminds me of Capablanca vs Golombek, 1939 which was played nearly sixty years before!
   Jul-10-17 Karpov vs Topalov, 2002 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I've just come across this game and maybe I am missing something, but two ideas occurred to me: first, did black resign because white threatens 32 Ka3, when the black bishop is lost? Secondly, could black fight on for a while by playing 31... g6 ?
   Dec-27-16 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Compare this game, played 55 years later: Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969
   Dec-17-16 Tal vs Portisch, 1965 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: There are so many games in which black goes wrong by playing Qb6. Compare Euwe v Fischer, 1957 and Alekhine v Lasker, Zürich 1934
   Dec-07-16 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: According to Larry Evans, Fischer was more concerned about the extent to which he would be exploited by any agent who proposed a deal than interested in how much he himself would earn. It was his paranoia that prevented him from capitalising on his success.
   Dec-02-16 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Fischer's allegations of pre-arranged World Championship match games was a regurgitation of his claim that twelve games at the 1962 Candidates' Tournament had been prearranged. He even told Dick Cavett, when asked by him to explain what he meant when he had made allegations ...
   Nov-29-16 Spielmann vs B Hoenlinger, 1929 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I've just played through this game for the first time ever and, without having read Pts92'S comment, I wondered why Spielmann didn't play 20 Qe5. E.g. 20 Qe5 Kg7 21 Nh5+ gxh5 22 Qg5+, a familiar trick perhaps best-known from the game Botvinnik v Capablanca, AVRO 1938.
   Nov-25-16 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1974 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I once read on a forum opinions of the outcome of a Fischer v Karpov match in 1975. I couldn't believe it when people said, '13-11 to Fischer' and so on, assuming the match duration would have been the same as in 1972. Certainly, most opinions I have come across over the ...
   Nov-18-16 Petrosian vs Portisch, 1974 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Well, Lt. Surena, Petrosian was Armenian - not Russian.
   Nov-12-16 Reshevsky vs Fischer, 1956
N.O.F. NAJDORF: In the collection of Fischer's games, 1955-57, from the 'Great Players' Series,' it is stated that black lost on time.
