  Fusilli: In the same tournament Najdorf was crushed by Gligoric in the same line: Najdorf vs Gligoric, 1953.

It's not easy to come up with active play for White that is fast and dangerous enough to counteract Black's advance on the kingside. Here Taimanov shows how to handle the white pieces:

Taimanov vs Bronstein, 1952

All these games were happening more or less simultaneously, considering how slowly chess information traveled back then. All of them preceded Najdorf's brilliant win over Taimanov in Zurich:
