Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-01-12  wordfunph: "The game of my life, if I can call it that, is the meeting with Najdorf in 1955 in Mar del Plata. I needed a draw to secure first place. A few days earlier I had won a very powerful tournament in Buenos Aires. But Najdorf wanted victory. We played; I sacrificed a piece thus forcing a draw."

- GM Borislav Ivkov
