  whiteshark: 31. Kg1
Jul-13-08  wolfmaster: <whiteshark> <31.Kg1> Well that would be a pretty bad move! Then, if Bernstein saw it, he could play 31...Rd1#! 0-1! Not a draw! Bernstein would win, and Najdorf would L-O-S-E! Why would you suggest such pig-headed moves? What's wrong with you? Are you mentally delusional? Are you a sub-200 player? Tell me, please!

  whiteshark: Take it easy, <wolf>! :D
Nov-24-09  newzild: <wolfmaster> I think Mr. <whiteshark> may have been speaking in jest.
Sep-27-11  romni: Here, in Great Britain, there are a great many sub 200 players, including myself. I am however basing that statement on the BCF (British Chess Federation) grading list! There is a formula for converting from BCF to FIDE rating and that is minus 600 and divide by 8 (-600, /8 )to reverse that just multply by 8 and add 600.
Sep-27-11  romni: I remember some players in Washington square park in NY being taken aback when i answered their question about my rating, by giving them my BCF grading!
May-20-16  Gambito23: Un cable de la época decía : "Najdorf se mostró muy nervioso después de recibir una carta de una amiga en la que le informaba de la muerte de su esposa en un campo de concentración.Tras efectuar Bernstein una combinación equivocada,Najdorf pasó por alto el error y empató.Si hubiera ejecutado la jugada correcta,Bernstein se hubiera visto obligado inmediatamente a renunciar" Yo no he encontrado esa jugada tan fatal. Además,es en este mismo torneo en donde,rondas después,Najdorf aceptó una apuesta donde afirmó que a Botwvinnik "lo desplumaría igual que a un pollo". Ganó la partida y la antipatía del suspicaz ruso,quien lo vetó para el Campeonato Mundial de 1948.
May-22-16  Gambito23: La jugada ganadora sería 13.Ae4, ganando calidad en todas las variantes,parece.
