Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-07  Dagobert2: A game where Fischer plays his beloved Najdorf and there's no kibitzing? Now there's a rarity.
Sep-12-08  joelsontang: What about 44.Rxe3? would that at least draw for white? or even win??
Sep-12-08  Marmot PFL: 44.Rxe3 Rxa6 45.Rf3 Ne4 46.Rxd3 Nxg5 and black is winning.
Jan-01-10  paul1959: <The Famous Chess Cat> This was 1967 , Fischer was 24 and he was playing a top Yugoslav GM
Jan-01-10  The Famous Chess Cat: Frick, I'm terrible at math...
Mar-31-12  screwdriver: The fiancetto of the king's bishop confuses me when this is labled as a Najdorf. I always associated fiancettoing the king's bishop with the dragon Sicilian. But maybe it fits with the Najdorf too, not sure?
Jul-22-14  McNastyMac: @screwdriver, with g6 instead of a6, it would be a Dragon, but because of the a6, it is a Najdorf. The g6 move is a very solid/reliable option against the 6. h3 attack, and is played mainly instead of e6 or e5.
May-22-16  BarcelonaFirenze: How would this game continue if 44.Rxe3?
Jul-22-16  SpiritedReposte: Simply <44. ...d2> and white will need to sac knight for pawn...unless he doesn't mind a black queen showing up.

The a-pawn drops shortly after and bada bing bada boom it's an endgame where black has an extra knight.

Not sure what you mean: after 44.Rxe3 d2 White simply plays 45.Nxd2. There's no piece sac necessary.

Apr-15-18  SpiritedReposte: Indeed. I was mistakenly thinking it was black to move in the final position.
