Castling Queenside in the Bg5 Najdorf: A necessity?

Jan 17, 2016, 1:31 PM |

Hi all

I played an interesting 15 10 game online today that had a bit of a twist to it.  My opponent quite outrated me on the long standard time controls but instead it was I who held the initiative.  

I'd like to show how castling queenside in the Najdorf can negate white's kingside pawnstorms, induce weaknesses, and bring about a strong position.

Although, I held the edge until almost the very end and then played a careless move (time trouble sucks!), I consider it to be a very instructive game.

Let me know what you think!
