Nov-20-04  kostich in time: This game is included in 100 Master Games of Modern Chess, By Tartakover and Dumont..Najdorf manuevers with great subtlety. This was one of the early games which put the Najdorf on the map
Jan-10-05  waddayaplay: This game is featured as one of the lessons of the ICC lesson-robot "MrSpock". The lesson is called "a Najdorf celebration".
Nov-01-05  Chessography: Not that his method wasn't effective itself, but why didn't Najdorf play 24... Re8+ ? After Ne4, Rxe4+!, Kxe4, Nxc3+ would win the queen.
Apr-17-06  Chessography: Excuse me, that's 34... Re8+, not 24... Re8+. :)
Feb-19-18  schnarre: ...Love the way Black gradually ground through the Queenside & Center.
