Naiditschs Tournament Preparation GuideSuper GM Arkadij Naiditsch (peak rating 2737) is back, examining some of the greatest games from the past few years from the world’s greatest players.

GM Naiditsch begins with a deep exploration of the Najdorf, an extremely sharp and powerful opening, showing how rich it can be, and how many creative options Black has at their disposal.

Next, GM Naiditsch analyses some of the greatest attacking games of recent memory, from a beautiful queen sacrifice from Radjabov to Caruana’s daring pawn rush. You’ll pick up some of the key attacking ideas being employed by the world’s best.

Many players understand the general opening principles and learn basic endgame tactics, but often fall apart in the middlegame. How do you find a plan in this crucial part of the game? By examining 7 recent masterpieces, GM Naiditsch reveals the nuances of the middlegame, unveiling the positional and strategic ideas you can employ in your games. Turn those tense close games into victories!
