Najdorf Would anyone like to play the Najdorf with me ?

i've started a few games and everyone joining them is playing their own opening , not paying attention to the title . *sigh*

send a challenge with najdorf in the title or any other opening you want to play .

Thanks to those who pick the najdorf ahead of time .

lol ... 13 games started titled najdorf and so far it looks like MAYBE 3 are going to play the opening ... anyone else ? please .

Maybe.... ....you should begin by telling them what the Najdorf variation is.

yes, maybe they thought that they were playing the Nagdorf----

game titles I doubt that was the case...
In five games titled "Alekhine e4 Nf6" I had one person play the actual opening

i give up lol ... i switched to adding the first 3 moves to the title to give people a hint or atleast direct them in the way of the najdorf and i still get about 1/10 that actually pays attention and plays it ...

once again anyone that wants to najdorf me , send the challenge !

just doesn't always work I wanted to practice against Nimzo and was surprised when my opponent played d5. I don't know why players do this - they could join a different game.
Maybe some day there would be a way of starting the first moves of a game so a player joining would have to make those moves to join. Possibly if more of us took paid membership Mike would have more time to install these sort of "extras."

RHP has that.... I play on RHP too, also a good site for chess, and they have that, although you can't make it a rated game, it's good for practice and avoids all this junk!

P.S. - This is in no way shape or form meant to bash GK.

I know the feeling. I once put in something like "1550 max please", and it was entirely ignored by 3 people. (I cancelled those games, by the way)

I'll play you - assuming you mean the move list as follows:

1. e4 c5
2. Nf3 d6
3. d4 cxd4
4. Nxd4 Nf6
5. Nc3 a6

P.S. I also assume you are interested in the "poisoned pawn" after the following:

6. Bg5 e6
7. f4 Qb6

but that b2 pawn isn't all that... ;o)

Thanks for the challenges ... well i didnt intend really to play the poisoned pawn specifically , but rather to try to play as many najdorf games as i could to get the feel for the game the opening plays .

I'm learning (as always), and I don't mind what happens after move 5. :)
