   N.O.F. NAJDORF has kibitzed 189 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Apr-10-21 Alekhine vs Yates, 1922 (replies)
N.O.F. NAJDORF: Maybe Yates would have answered 33 Bg6 as in the game and a draw would have resulted: 33 Bg6 Ke8 34 Rxf7 Rxf7 35 Qxf7+ Kd8 36 Qf8+ Kc7 37 Qd6+ Kb7 38 Bh5 Rc1 39 Qd7+ Or 36 Rxd5+ exd5 37 Qxd5+ Kc7 38 Qd6+ Kb7 39 Be4+ Ka6
   Apr-01-21 Yates vs Reti, 1924
N.O.F. NAJDORF: 'I like [Ng5] because ... it can easily be followed by Qg4, Qh4 threatening mate and at no point can black play f6 (or f5) trying to dislodge the knight (or queen) due to either Nxg6 threatening mate and Qe7 or Rh8+ winning Qe7 with Nxg6+...' (Gofer) Rh8+ is unnecessary! ...
   Apr-01-21 Yates vs Gruenfeld, 1925
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I was just playing through the moves again and - having no recollection of my previous comment - this time I saw instead: 30 ... Rxe8 31 Qe7!!
   Mar-24-21 Yates vs J S Morrison, 1922
N.O.F. NAJDORF: 36 ... Rxd6 37 Ng5+ winning the queen and 37 Rh8+ Kg6 38 Qg3+ Kf6 39 Qg5 mate
   Mar-17-21 Reshevsky vs Savon, 1973
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I have just noticed that Eggman anticipated my solution by nearly three years! I think he is wrong about it being slower than the variation ending with Qf4 mate. After 39 g5 Qxf2+ 40 Kxf2 Bc5+ 41 Kg2 whatever Black plays next, there follows 43 Qxf7 or Qf7 mate If ...
   Mar-14-21 Yates vs B Verlinsky, 1925
N.O.F. NAJDORF: I noticed that too. It isn't the first time I have seen a mate in one missed in play. I can only think that Yates had become so committed to keeping his queen on the d1-h5 diagonal that he overlooked it. Still, the fact that he played 34 h4 instead suggests he was aiming to ...
   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-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.
