  Honza Cervenka: For a while I was wondering why white did not play 38.Rxa6+ and 39.Bxd7, but then (after much longer time than it should have been appropriate) I finally saw 39...Nf3+ forking Kg1 and Be5. I need a coffee just now.:-)
May-02-13  Ionspot: Why is the B93 Najdorf Sicilian called the "Amsterdam" Variation?

Its debut is in a game with both players from the Ukraine, playing in Moscow.

Geller-Taimanov may have been its debut, but its real coming out party was Amsterdam 1950, where 6.f4 was played three times. C Kottnauer vs Szabados, 1950 in particular was a sparkling attacking win for White.
