How To Play The Najdorf Vol. 3 – Gm Garry Kasparov (physical Disc)

The Najdorf system in the Sicilian Defence has a legendary reputation.

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.

They used the Sicilian Najdorf (pronounced “neigh-dorff”, rhyming with “high morph”) during their child prodigy years and retained it as an important part of their repertoire throughout their 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 Sicilian 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, Kasparov examines the move 6.Be3, which is today considered the main line in the Najdorf System.
