whats the problem in pushing e5 in Bg5 Najdorf?
I saw a game in my database
[pgn][Event "Turin ol (Women) 37th"]
[Site "Turin"]
[Date "2006.05.21"]
[Round "1"]
[White "Yanjindulan, Dulamsuren"]
[Black "Ebtissam, Mohamed...|/pgn]
In this game black made mistake and there was a big difference in ELO so black lost but my Rybka suggests that black shoud play 11....h6 and the position is roughly equal( may be black is better) then whats the problem in playing this way. Undecided
