I went through a Siclian opening book today looking for the best ways to fight the Najdorf/Scheveningen. Vs. the schev. I found the Keres attack (scores 60% for white and is super active). This opening made me remember one that I had seen used a couple of times (only by one player) against the Najdorf. You've probably heard of this player, he has a movie...he was supposed to be the "next Fischer"....he's doing martial arts or some thing like that now...Yeah, it's Josh Waitzkin
. Anyhow...have any of you guys heard of/used this attack? It certainly looks interesting and seems at least somewhat similar to the Keres attack. Here's a game and the PGN if you guys are interested.
