Heya.

I checked a little and:

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bg5 e6 7.f4 Nbd7 8.Qf3 Qc7 9.O-O-O b5 10.e5 Bb7 11.Nxe6

(or 11.Qh3 dxe5 12.Nxe6; which seems to cut out more options)
Is apparently a more well known line that 10.Nxe6 may just transpose to.

If black goes
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bg5 e6 7.f4 Nbd7 8.Qf3 Qc7 9.O-O-O b5 10.Nxe6 fxe6 11.e5 Bb7
and not 11...Qb7

That being said it's nice to be able to have a rare move order.

B96 Najdorf 10. Nxe6!!

Hi all,

I was about to refresh my najdorf repertoire and put the known moves in and stopped after 9. ...b5, when suddenly SF calculated about 10. Nxe6!!

It seems, no GM ever played this move and it's not mentioned in my Fritz opening book:

it seems, Black can hold, but over the board it's a killer:

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6.
Bg5 e6 7. f4 Nbd7 8. Qf3 Qc7 9. O-O-O b5 10. Nxe6 fxe6 11. e5 Qb7 (
11... Bb7 12. Qh3 dxe5 13. Qxe6+ Be7 14. Bxb5 axb5 15. Nxb5 Qc6 16. Nd6+ Kd8
17. fxe5 Kc7 18. Bxf6 gxf6 19. Qxe7 Rxa2 20. Nxb7 Ra1+ 21. Kd2 Qd5+) 12. Qh3
dxe5 13. Bd3

Of course, I've to analyse it more, but I am just too excited and wanted to share it Wink
