    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!

    Well you may learn a lot not only by playing your own games but by looking at games from others in this tournament.........as its 1700+ banded duel the games should be of quite a good standard too!!

    Also to David Tebb..............do you remember we played a 5 min game in a Najdorf on the Blitz site here.........I was White and played 6.Be2 and you pipped me in a real close game!!

    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

    Good luck to all competitors!

    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...

    Yes the Bg5 lines look like a lot of fun, I got the starting out book just to give me a basis and now I am thinking of checking out Nunn's book on the Bg5 variations, anyone have it?
