Fischer-Adams 6.h3 doing great in Gibraltar!
Another Najdorf Bites the Dust!
Yesterday’s blistering encounter in Gibraltar between grandmasters Le Quang and Santos Latasa featured one of Fischer’s pet lines (6.h3) against the Najdorf. Curiously, today this line of Fischer has almost become the main line against the Najdorf, and is yet one more testament to how far ahead of his time Bobby was.
