   Mar-29-17 Suetin vs Polugaevsky, 1959 (replies)
zanzibar: Since this is the debut of the Polugaevsky Variation of the Najdorf, let's add van der Sterren's comments about the line: <[After 7...b5] This is the Polugaevsky Variation, a line that is so breathtakingly complicated that a remarkable discrepancy has evolved between theory ...
   Mar-29-17 K Miton vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2008
zanzibar: This is an amazingly precise continuation of an amazing variation of the Najdorf (starting from 11.Ncb5). A fitting draw given both sides playing to navigate such narrow paths. As van der Sterren says- <"And these are not coffee-house games, but products of thorough, deadly ...

   Mar-28-17 Krum Georgiev vs Kasparov, 1980 (replies)
zanzibar: 11.Ncb5!? might be theory today, but it was a TN in 1980. This game marks its debut on <CG>, but <MB> has an earlier game, again with Georgiev as White: <Georgiev--Rashkovsky, N. (1979) Dubna 20 1/2-1/2> Maybe someone with an old Informant can check that the TN is
   Mar-28-17 Bronstein vs Tal, 1982
zanzibar: There's a lot to be said about White's opening play after 10.Nd1 (e.g. not exchanging on f6), but 10.Nd1 is a sensible move, albeit, when the knight finally does redeploy on move 15.Nf2, it likely would have been better placed at e3. 10.Nd1 Be7 is probably a better response by ...
