Najdorf: A dynamic grandmaster repertoire against 1.e4 Vol.1
by Luis Engel
Scarcely any other opening after 1. e4 enjoys such a good reputation and is so feared by White players. We are, of course, talking about the Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian Defence! This two-part Fritz trainer offers you a complete repertoire against all possibilities that White has tried against the Najdorf on move 6 - after the initial moves 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6. The Najdorf Variation combines aggressive attacking chess with deep strategic plans, so there is something for every type of player! Ways to achieve a clear opening advantage have yet to be found for White players, so it's no surprise that the Najdorf is considered one of the best and most-played openings.
In the first part of the video series, we will look at White's four main moves: 6.Bg5, 6.Be3, 6. Be2 and 6.Bc4. In addition, this Fritz trainer contains over 20 positions to play out to consolidate the most important positions from our repertoire. With the Opening App you're able to test your recollection of the theory shown on this course.
