    Sep-29-04    jsanpedro: I'm Argentine and some years ago I read in Najdorf's chess column in the newspaper Clarin that he offered a draw but Guevara refuses it, leaving him with no option but winning. I don't know why the game is recorded as a draw. May the agree on a draw and then keep playing until Guevara resigned? Che might be a good player, but I doubt he was good enough as to keep Najdorf at bay...
    Oct-14-04    ricardolopez: I'm Argentine too and I remember Najdorf wrote that when he offered a draw to Guevara he agreed but saying: "Well, you are a great master of chess and a good diplomatic too. But now, please, play not diplomatically" and the following game was not recorded. If I'm not wrong the game we see at present was played in one simul sesion.

    certainly Najdorf was afraid of being shot by communist! excuse me but this man caused a terrible disease with the castro fidel que son two killers and I see nothing of heroism in those guerrillas who only distributed sadness throughout latin america with his bloodshed.
