Only 1 copy left in stock! The Najdorf Sicilian is one of the key battlegrounds of modern chess. This opening line occurs in a high proportion of top level games, and is popular amongst players of all levels. World Champions Fischer and Kasparov are the Najdorfs most famous adherents, both made it their main defence, and scored a high proportion of wins with it, while very rarely losing. The English Attack, typically Be3 and f3 became popular as a direct attacking method against the Najdorf in the 1980s, following its successful use by Nunn, Short and Chandler. Since then, it has become established as the most critical line of the Najdorf, with Anand and even Kasparov himself using it to devastating effect at the highest level. This book is the first to be devoted to this most topical of openings, and its comprehensive coverage will enable players of all standards to play either side of the English Attack with confidence. Sammalvuo also discusses the trendy 6 f3 move order, and the English Attack setup against a variety of other Sicilian lines. Softback, 272 pages. Dimensions 145 x 248 x 18.8mm, 508 g.
