Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-21-09  jerseybob: Najdorf gets taken to school by the teacher in this one, and I'm trying to figure out why. Of course 12..Bb4 and 14..Bxd2 are a misadventure with the bishop, but black's game was uncomfortable before that, which Najdorf must've sensed. Maybe black shouldn't have been so quick with the exchange 7..cxd4 8.ed4 which unmasked the rook and made it impossible to achieve the freeing Ne4. Maybe just continuing with 00 and d5 was a better way.
