   N.O.F. NAJDORF has kibitzed 157 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-23-20 Fischer vs Rodolfo Cardoso, 1957
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I think Capablanca would have played 32 Rd7 immediately.
   Feb-23-20 Fischer vs K Warner, 1955
N.O.F. NAJDORF: 20 Nxb5 was an elementary mistake which Fischer wouldn't have made only months later. I agree that Fischer was not qualified to speak about anything other than chess, which is why he should have kept his mouth shut. The fact that he expressed admiration for Hitler at about ...
   Feb-22-20 G Kuzmin vs M Mukhin, 1972
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Black's 12th and 13th moves were bad mistakes. There are many games in which black is crushed when he has replaced his rook on f8 with a bishop.
   Feb-22-20 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I think 21 ... Ba8 was a bad move and black should have sacrificed the exchange on e6. Instead, he got a very passive position, with very little space to move, and was reduced to waiting for white to finish him off, which Lasker did expertly.
   Feb-20-20 Bronstein vs Najdorf, 1954
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Although 41 d8+ wins, 41 c7 is stronger!
   Feb-01-20 Fischer vs Larsen, 1970 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Thanks for your analysis, beatgiant, which I am ashamed to admit I have only just seen after all this time. They do say that foreseeing a piece taking another piece backwards is one of the hardest things to visualise (cf. the tragic Reshevsky v Savon interzonal game) and that
   Jan-24-20 Y Stepak vs Y Mashian, 1980
N.O.F. NAJDORF: 'the 50-move rule did not come up in this game.' Yes - you're right! I completely miscalculated.
   Dec-08-19 Tal vs Botvinnik, 1960 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Could black have played: 39 ... Ka8 40 Qc4 Rc6 ( 40 ... Ka7 41 Ra1) ?
   Dec-07-19 J Krejcik vs K Krobot, 1908 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: 'The move Rd1-d6 is not merely aggressive, it paralyzes the development of the enemy by preventing ...d7-d5.' 'So the rook prevents the d-pawn from moving.' The move 18 Rd6 does NOT prevent ... d5. That cannot be the point of the move.
   Dec-05-19 Reti vs L Asztalos, 1913 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: If 28 ... Qxb3 29 Bh6 and if 28 ... Kxf8 29 Rxf7+
