Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-05  TheSlid: Entertainment here, for all except Loek van Wely.

A question for Najdorf devotees - can Black really play 7 consecutive pawn moves (5 to 11) and have any hope of escape?

Mar-27-05  maoam: It's not the first time van Wely's been thrashed in this line either: Shirov vs Van Wely, 2000
Mar-28-05  TheSlid: The Shirov game was indeed a debacle. I am reminded of a musical joke:

Q. Have you ever played any music by the composer -----------?

A. No, but I think I once trod in some.

If this variation is not named, perhaps it could be called the "Stockhausen Variation" of the Najdorf.

Mar-31-05  AdrianP: Not so massively different from Anand vs Vallejo-Pons, 2005
Oct-01-05  Poisonpawns: Similar too yesterdays massacre of the "World Champ" Judit Polgar vs Kasimdzhanov, 2005
Dec-21-05  PhilFeeley: Note the 5 pawns on the f-file. Black goes down quickly.
Dec-28-05  notyetagm: In his Chess Informant annotations, Ivanchuk gives 20 ♖e7!! the double exclamation marks.
Dec-28-05  syracrophy: The white pawns are stronger than the lonely black pawn, so white can sacrifice whenever he wants his rook for the pawn, and the united white pawns will promote easily
Dec-28-05  Whitehat1963: Another crazy game to analyze. Enjoy this one too!
