   N.O.F. NAJDORF has kibitzed 45 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-17-17 Charousek vs J Wollner, 1893
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I believe the creator of the Bitzer Lake classic was actually born Rudolf Charousek and only adopted hs 'middle name ' after his family moved to Hungary. According to biographical details to be found online, he was born into a Bohemian Jewish family.
   Sep-22-17 Reshevsky vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Two points, in response to comments made by others above: first, it was Fischer who refused to play in the Munich Olympiad in 1958, unless he were placed on top board. Secondly, it is obvious from what happened subsequently in the first Karpov v Kasparov match that the ...
   Sep-05-17 Fischer vs Robert E Byrne, 1965 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I agree with your analysis, Yourang, except for the mis-type Nxf6 instead of Nxc6. The strange thing is that Fischer had already seen the zwischenzug ...bd6, which is why he didn't play 11 Nxc6. He must have forgotten about it. Had he played 11 Nxc6 instead of 12 Nxc6, he ...
   Sep-05-17 Fischer vs J Dedinsky, 1964 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Couldn't agree more! If you look at his tournament results for 1970, they are fantastic, yet he lost a game to a lowly-placed master by the name of Kovacevic. Is it a coincidence that that game was a French Defence, Winawer? It is astounding how many players played the ...
   Aug-30-17 Capablanca vs Spielmann, 1911 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Capablanca's bishop manoeuvre reminds me of Fischer's in this game, except that Fischer was attacking black's king, not queen: Fischer vs K Darga, 1960 I really don't see the point of Spielmann's 29...Qf8, although it is hard to think of another move.
   Aug-23-17 H W Russner vs C Walcker, 1942
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I have only just noticed that Indigo Violet provided the same reference in 2013. Yet I only found the article minutes ago...
   Aug-03-17 Magnus Smith vs Capablanca, 1911
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Another possibility is 26 Kh2 Bb1, winning the exchange!
   Jul-26-17 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: The point, which seems to have been wasted on both of you, is the beautiful move e5! Spassky must have been familiar with this game and actually got to play the move in a world championship match.
   Jul-26-17 Alekhine vs Lasker, 1934
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Rather too many mistakes by Lasker: 12...e5, 13...e5 x d4, 17... Qb6 and 24... f6. Alekhine must have anticipated the final error by playing 24 Rd3.
   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!
