Sicilian Najdorf 6.Bc4 vs Chaney

Ronald L. Chaney of Burlington, Iowa is a very experienced Najdorf player. Four times he had Black against me in the Sicilian Defence. We each won two. I was impressed with his understanding of the Najdorf Variation. Chaney was active in APCT postal.

In the game below Kevin L. Bachler employs the 6.Bc4 Fischer Attack. Ron Chaney boldly plays pawn moves for six of his first seven moves. By move 10 all Black's minor pieces were developed, but his king was still in the center. White sacrificed a bishop for three pawns and the attack to keep Black from castling.

Both sides had chances in a sharp tactical position. The fight resembled a hand to hand martial arts movie with about 15 moves of punches and counter punches. When the dust cleared, Ron Chaney had mate in one and won.
