I've faced it a couple of times and I think White just gets a pleasant position after 7.Bxf6 Qxf6 8.Nd5 Qd8 9.Nf5. 

It's not exactly a refutation but the resulting position is hardly why Black players typically choose to play the Najdorf.


This is the line Negi gives in his book on the Najdorf from the white side. It seems to be common wisdom that it's the reason 6..e5 doesn't work so well against 6.Bg5

Surely there is an "historical" refutation


Traditional wisdom was that White plays 6. Bg5 to prevent 6. .. e5. All of 7. Bxf6, 7. Nf3 and 7 Nb3 are then considered good. It is a position where engines seem rather less concerned than humans about the d5 square. 

A parallel line is 6. Bc4 . This is also directed at preventing 6. ..e5 but some players have been trying .. e5 in recent years

A 2400 player played against me this "impossible" move
After some 20 moves I am probably winning
I could find in my DB nothing convincing , but I have only recent games
Surely there is an "historical" refutation
Maybe somebody knows it ?
