Dang what a game ! Not expected from a Dutch Stonewall. Najdorf kept opening more lines with strong pawn moves...

The game is known as "The Polish Immortal," since both players were citizens of Poland at the time (Najdorf immigrated to Argentina, where he was playing in the Chess Olympiad, when World War II broke out. Najdorf then "Spanishised" his first name from Mendel to Miguel). This is the game that got me playing the Dutch Stonewall.

I've never seen this game before, and oh boy what a crime that is. This has to go down as one of the best mating combinations ever played, with Black sacrficing 4 pieces in the attack.

PS. There is some confusion over the date of this game and it is unlikely that it was actually played in 1935.
