Originally posted by David Tebb I've just entered it. I wasn't sure about playing, because I have enough games already, but the Najdorf is my favourite opening. I'm quite happy on the White side also! 🙂
Well you are only playing 2 games and it raises the profile of the tiurney if strong players like yourself enter!
Originally posted by najdorfslayer I dunno there is very stiff competition..............cludi will be a tough nut and I have lost to LekZ before! But not in a Najdorf!!
You lost to me only once, we drew three times...
My najdorf is probably the worst you could expect from a 2000+ player. 😕 I think I just don't like it, but it will be a great learning experience. I will be following your games, and hope I'll have learned enough to hold my own, when facing a najdorf-expert like yourself 😀
Originally posted by mcreynolds Wow I am probably going to get murdered in this tournament, I just started learning the najdorf.
6. Bg5 induces the ...e6 lines and you can obtain a Scheveninegen type position.
Here is an intriguing game in the English attack. 13. Na4 may have led to a line less drawish than the one in the game that occurs if Black plays 15...a4 and if white plays 17. Nxa4. Had either deviated from playing the two moves just stated, the game would have been theoretically interesting...
