How to play the Najdorf

by Garry Kasparov

The 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. There were two world champions who formed much of their careers using the Najdorf system as their weapon of choice against 1.e4: Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov celebrated spectacular successes with it.

Both players used the Najdorf 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 favourite opening.

In this video course Garry Kasparov introduces the various sub-systems of the Najdorf, including the central “Poisoned Pawn” variation. Furthermore he devoted a chapter to the main lines against 6.Bg5 e6 7.f4. This includes the legendary Polugaevsky Variation. Last but not least In Kasparov examines the move 6.Be3, which is today considered the main line in the Najdorf System.

The development of each line is placed in historical perspective and examined in great depth, with Kasparov‘s characteristic intensity. More than two 9 hours of first-class private tuition.
