Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-01-04  Calculoso: Up the exchange but what is worse is h5 winning the knight.
Nov-01-04  Eatman: Got to give the man respect. Euwe still had the cajones to play an ultra sharp variation after his playing strenght and tactical vision had declined. He must have been 57 years old at the time.

  Benzol: This game reminds me of this one
Tringov vs Fischer, 1965
although the result is different
Nov-01-04  kevin86: A deep contrast:white's knights leaped all over the board-while black's is trapped. A bad (K)night for Max.
Nov-01-04  zugzwangdragon: This is an example of how deadly the white side of the poisoned pawn Najdorf can be if White is a good attacker. This variation is played frequently at low levels with a different result because White cannot utilize his fearsome advantage.
Nov-01-04  Knight13: Very nice strategy.

  Chnebelgrind: Clare Benedict Cup, Chaumont Nauch√Ętel, Switzerland. See with comments of Euwe
Dec-02-05  russep: wow Euwe played the najdorf I wonder why all his other games are classical. He must have been having fun.
Apr-11-06  MorphyMatt: why not 13... fxe6?

  Benzol: 13...fxe6 14.♘xe6 ♗xg5 15.♘xg7+ ♔f7 16.0-0+ leaves the Black King very exposed.
Aug-02-09  binno: <Benzol>
13...fxe6 14.Nxe6 Bxg5 15.Nxg7+ Kf7 16.0-0+ Kxg7 17.Qxg5# funny.

  Chessical: This was one of the key games in the development of this line. Fischer's ideas in this very sharp system were successful put to the test in:

I Bilek vs Fischer, 1962

Quoting Eyal from that page: Fischer employed the "Poisoned Pawn" variation, and ...introduced several important novelties, especially to the 10.e5/12.Bc4 line, that played a major role in rehabilitating it for Black during the 60s. Here, (eg v Bilek) by 14...Bxg5, he was improving on 14...fxe6 from A Dueckstein vs Euwe, 1958. In later games he introduced 12...Bb4 Tringov vs Fischer, 1965 12...Qa5 G Mazzoni vs Fischer, 1967
