Sep-08-05  RookFile: I'm afraid White castled on the wrong side of the board in this one, LOL.

  WannaBe: Don't know the Opocensky Veriation, but I always thought in the Najdorf you tend to castle long as white... *shrug*
Sep-08-05  RookFile: Well, I have to admit, there is a blitz game from this same blitz tournament where Robert Byrne does the same thing. But, more usually, you play it like Karpov, castle kingside and play f4.
Oct-10-05  Helios727: When white plays 6.Be2, then he should castle kingside. If he plays 6.Bg5, then he usually castles queen side.
Oct-10-05  fgh: Ne4 Ba3 and black should win easily in a few moves.
Oct-10-05  fgh: However, the big question is how you can win if you are a queen down? Obviously after Ne4 black should play Nc3+ and white is hopelessly lost.
Jan-28-06  LarryEM15: Did white lose on time?

After 31. Ne4, Nc3+ how does black continue after 32. Rxc3?
