    Najdorf Sicilian - 6.Be3 Ng4

    In the Najdorf Sicilian (after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 ed4 4.Nd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6) Black can meet 6.Be3 with 6...Ng4 - does anyone know if this line has a name?

    .......though 7.Bc1 Nf6 does not seem a popular draw for White to accept or for Black to stick with. Of the few thousand master games that have reached 6.Ng4, it seems that only about 4% ended in a quick draw.
