Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-18-11  turbo231: Why didn't Naka take that pesky Knight with his Rook? I'm sure I'm missing something, duh I see why now.

Rd8xd7 Qf3xa3, Bb4xa3,Rb1xb8+! Rd7d8,Rb8xd8+,Kf8xd8 and white has a rook and black has a bishop.

Jun-18-11  virginmind: <turbo> you mean Re8xe7 (there never was a rook on d8). ok, here what happens if black captures that knight: Analysis by Fritz 11:

1. (1.87): 28.Qxa3 Bxa3 29.Rxb8+ Kh7 30.Rfb1 Kg6 31.R1b7 Rxb7 32.Rxb7 Bc5 33.Kg2 a5 34.Kf3 Kf6 35.Rb5 Bb4 36.Rb8 Bc3 37.Rb7 Bb4 38.Ra7

Jun-18-11  turbo231: Yes, I meant to say Re7Re8!
Jun-18-11  turbo231: Also Re8xe7.
Jun-18-11  NARC: I am checking up on the Opocensky because I like to see a choke approach to the Najdorf, many other variations are more "blow up" at the cost of minor piece sacrifices.
Jun-26-11  ReikiMaster: 16.Qe2 Nxe4 17.Qh5 looks good.
