Aug-13-13  parisattack: "The Mar del Plata variation could be named after me, since I was the one who created it" and, to 7. ...Nc6, "At the time this move (instead of 7. ...Nbd7) was brand new having just been discovered by Aronin and employed in the game Taimanov-Bronstein, USSR Championship 1952" notes Gligo in the introduction to his win against Najdorf at MdP.

Both Najdorf-Gligoric and Eliskases-Gligoric are superbly annotated in his 'I Play Against Pieces.'

  sea7kenp: Gligoric's Finish is quite entertaining. A Knight and a Rook are Definitely not enough, to counter a Queen!
