   N.O.F. NAJDORF has kibitzed 182 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-24-21 Blackburne vs Yates, 1907
N.O.F. NAJDORF: 26 ... Rb8g8 would also have won, since White's rook would be lost.
   Feb-24-21 G Schories vs Yates, 1910
N.O.F. NAJDORF: On second thoughts, in the last variation, 30 ... Qxd2+ 31 Kxd2 Bf4+
   Feb-04-21 Alekhine vs Yates, 1923
N.O.F. NAJDORF: There is part of the first Cavett interview at: and what seems to be the whole of the second interview at: Presumably, the discussion about Yates and Alekhine took place in the first interview. ...
   Feb-04-21 Alekhine vs Yates, 1922
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Yes, Granny. I think I must have overlooked 33 Bg6 Qe3+ 34 Kh1 Qh3+ If 34 Kh2 Qxe5+ and if 34 Rf2 Rc1 is crushing
   Feb-01-21 J Penrose vs Tartakower, 1950
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I've just seen this game for the first time. I thought White would play 25 f4 and could not understand 25 Qe2. Penrose then played 26 f4. I don't understand why he delayed playing it.
   Dec-25-20 Y Dobkin vs M Grinberg, 1944 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: @ sachistu: Grinberg is a corruption of Grünberg. The Israeli grandmaster Yehuda Grinfeld's name has sometimes been rendered Grünfeld, which is the original spelling. By the way,the Austrian grandmaster Ernst Grünfeld was not Jewish and was indignant when the Gestapo, ...
   Dec-25-20 M Czerniak vs J Hernando Pertierra, 1975 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Very nice finish!
   Oct-28-20 Yates vs Gruenfeld, 1925
N.O.F. NAJDORF: 30 ... Rxe8 would have been met by 31 Qf4 with the dual threat of 32 Qf7 mate and 32 Qf8+
   Jul-28-20 Uhlmann vs Smyslov, 1973
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I don't think Smyslov was in the right frame of mind at this tournament. It was only Category 9 and yet he drew three of his first five games in 18 moves. Two were with Stean and Hartston. He needed to play ... h6 one move earlier. Smyslov does seem to have underestimated ...
   Jul-02-20 Lilienthal vs Najdorf, 1948
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I considered Rybka's suggested move 19 ... Qc7, but then 20 Qg4 + should win easily.
