Nunn in The complete Najdorf, 1996: "There are 27 games featuring the unappealing move 6...e5. Not a single one of these games features a player of IM strenght or above as Black. There is little point in covering such a move in detail - it is just bad after 7.Bxf6 Qxf6 (gxf6 8.Nb3 +-) 8.Nd5 Qd8 9.Nf5."
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

I don't understand, how come there's Bg5 happens on move 5? 

Can show the moves?

Or are you reffering to 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cd4 4.Nd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bg5 e5?

I'm assuming e5 is bad against Bg5 but It's not in NCO and it doesn't appear to be a trivial advantage. It looks like the Shveshnikov but when I play Bxf6, after either Qxf6 or xf6 my knight looks prettier than on a3 but is just as far away from e3. Putting him on c3 isn't as good because c2 becomes a target.
