Aug-01-03  stef21: the 9. axb4 cxd4 10. Bxc4 dxc3 line seems to favour white for he is having two bishops
Jul-08-04  refutor: lol 9 games played all time...i'm making a point to play this line every chance i get ;)

  Phony Benoni: THe Internet Chess Club maintains a database of blitz games played by titled and other highly rated players and computers. Out of nearly 7,000,000 games, this line has been used 32 times. Second looks like D65, with 34.
Dec-26-06  2021: I guess Najdorf is good with this opening. He played 3 games and won them all! Even better, He played Reshevsky in two of the games and won! I am making a note to play this opening next tournment!
Dec-26-06  2021: The moves that are shown at the top look wrong to me.

  Phony Benoni: The moves are right, so far as they go. 9.Bxc4 cxd4 need to be included to reach the diagrammed position.
Jan-02-07  e4Newman: i didn't realize the nimzo could share ...c5 with the tarrasch

eco is crazy

Mar-25-09  great uncle bulgaria: the near superfluous eco e57
Mar-25-09  WhiteRook48: shouldn't they say 9 Bxc4?
Mar-26-09  chessman95: Only five games? lol, so much for the 'main line'.
Nov-24-10  rapidcitychess: Main line?!?!?!

  whiteshark: Sumthin's rong with the line <1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 e3 O-O 5 Nf3 d5 6 Bd3 c5 7 O-O Nc6 8 a3 dxc4 9>. It looks incomplete compared to the given diagram. There are also no notable games.

On the contrary the OE shows 185 games Opening Explorer

I'd guess ceegee is able fix it with some Ctrl+Alt+Del commands... ;)

  whiteshark: Thanks <ceegee> for fixing it today!
