    I am sure if I was white in this situation, I would still find a way to lose the game. :)

    in move 22, why did'nt he play 22. Rxa1+, the the best move white has is Rb1(otherwise it's mate.). Then black could play Rxb1+. Then the only move white has is Ne1. Then black could play Rxe1#

    Looking at the game below: I am a beginner so maybe I am missing something obvious... isn't it mate is 22. Qxa1 Ra1

    So rook take queen and it ends. if night moves down, rook takes. if rook moves down, rook takes. There is no block.

    this is nice opening specially as if your playing with black then you shold be perfect in opening book line beacase after that black gets solid position which is not at all easy to break and white may tend to make mistake and the solid position componsate with loss of time in early  pawn moves !! its  kind of siscilian schewaningan where black have to play some passive moves  but this bookline is very easy to remember and i have more than equal success by playing as black!! but pawnstorm by white in middle game is headache so i always keep bishop pair to have counter attack !!

    Qc7 with bishop at d6 can help black a lot..

    I feel like it's hard to play as black you have a hole on b6 and it's no the najdorf so my knights are going right there

    It's a good opening, but rare. Black would not only play pawns while seeing you develop pieces.
