Nice game. I am going to add it to my Model Games in the Line.

He cites only Kupreichik-Beliavsky, Leningrad 1974

[Event "URS-ch42"]

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bg5 e6 7.f4 Be7 8.Qf3 Qc7

48.Ka2 Rbb3 0-1

when I can't figure out why Kupreichik didn't take the exchange with 22. Bb6

* * * * * * * *

* * * * * * * *


as Black doesn't have enough even though his bishops look nice after

22...Rxh2 (it's probably better to not take the pawn, keeping an extra pair of rooks on the board but white is certainly to be favored anyway) 23.Rg2 Rxg2 24.Bxg2 Qc6 25.Bxd8 Bxd8 26. Bf1

Your 20. Bd4 move should be similar and also favor white.

Nice game, and possibly of some theoretical importance.

PS I always knew that the Najdorf was unsound - the weakness on b6 is fatal!  Wink
