The Bg5 Najdorf Revisited – Volume 2
The Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian Defence, named after the great Polish-Argentine grandmaster, is
one of the most popular chess openings at all levels. It has been championed by many elite players, the
three most notable being the world champions Robert Fischer, Garry Kasparov and Viswanathan Anand.
It enjoys a reputation as a very theoretically sound and uncompromising weapon. The positions that
arise in the Najdorf are among the most complex and double-edged positions you can get out of any
opening, making it a very interesting, but also demanding choice. The Najdorf has been a part of my
repertoire for many years, bringing me many good results.
This book is an ambitious project. I decided to thoroughly investigate the sharpest line of the Najdorf
Variation, namely 6.Bg5, and produce a master repository of the current state of its theory. The book you
hold is the result of many months of research and analysis. It is one step ahead of the presently
established theory, because I based a lot of my analysis on new correspondence and computer games.
During my work, I discovered many subtle nuances as well as spectacular shots. The material can be
challenging in its complexity, but also rewarding in its beauty.
The book is intended mainly for advanced and expert players. It is surely worth studying even for very
strong grandmasters. In general, the higher your level, the more benefit you will gain from memorizing
the lines from the book. However, weaker players can also benefit from studying the material and trying
to understand the complex variations. It will certainly improve their tactical intuition. I included a large
number of exercises (using critical positions from all the chapters), in which the reader is required to
find the best continuation. I believe the process of solving these will greatly help the reader not only to
memorize the lines, but also to enhance their tactical and positional skills.
