Like Bobby Fischer, the Sicili

Like Bobby Fischer, the Sicilian Najdorf was my first love, too. This DVD goes into explaining the main ideas behind it, and comes with an extensive opening book to practice.

I'm learning how to play with

I'm learning how to play with the Sicilian system, and the Najdorf defence is one of the most interesing variations of this opening.


Overview

software_requires_windowsThe Najdorf system in the Sicilian Defence has a legendary reputation as a defensive weapon for Black. It is an opening where people often strive for a full point, instead of simply defending the position with the black pieces.

Many great players have contributed to the development of this complex opening. Two world champions formed much of their careers using the Najdorf system as their weapon of choice against 1.e4: Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov.

Both players celebrated spectacular successes with it, both used the Najdorf (pronounced “neigh-dorff”, rhyming with “high morph”) during their child prodigy years and retained it as an important part of their repertoire during their entire careers. For Garry Kasparov, this added up to experience with the Najdorf at the very highest levels of chess.

For chess amateurs and professionals alike it is a great moment when the world’s leading expert shares all the secrets in his favorite opening. In part one Garry Kasparov introduced the various subsystems of the Najdorf, including the central „Poisoned Pawn“ variation.

Part two was devoted to the main lines against 6.Bg5 e6 7.f4, including the legendary Polugaevsky Variation. In Part three he examines the move 6.Be3, which is today considered the main line in the Najdorf System.

The DVD contains more than five hours of first-class private tuition. The package includes the latest Chess Base 9.0 Reader, a big reference database featuring all relevant Najdorf games, as well as a complete opening book that can be used to practice what you have learned with Fritz.
