Oct-01-13  jerseybob: On black's 8th, I think the way is 8..Nb6 and if 9.dc,Qd1 10.Rd1,Na4 recovering the pawn with at least equality. After Boleslavsky's 8..Nf6, the knight never finds any good "Grunfeld" play, but ends up miserably pinned on the d-file.

Kotov had played 11..Qa5 against Najdorf and drawn. 12..Nxe5?! was criticized as giving White too much scope; 12..Ndb4 was suggested as an improvement. Najdorf did not avoid opposite color bishops (he thought he would still have an edge) but never-the-less that was probably Black's best defense: ie. 17..Bxe3 18 Qxe3..Qc7 19 Rd2..Rac8 20 Rac1..a5. Black could likely still have held with 19..Rd7; instead after 19..Qd7? he was in trouble. 20..Nc3 21 Qe1..Nxd1 22 Rxd1 would not have helped Black.
