Yannick Pelletier

The Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian (1.e4,c5; 2.Nf3,d6; 3.d4,cxd4; 4.Nxd4,Nf6; 5.Nc3,a6) has been one of the most popular chess openings for decades. It appeals to players at every level and was an important part of the Black opening repertoire of two legendary World Champions: Bobby Fischer and Gary Kasparov.

The Najdorf is not only still going strong, it also offers Black excellent chances to play for a win. Studying and playing the Najdorf will help to improve your chess as it teaches important strategic concepts, such as fighting for the initiative, defending, and playing on black or white squares. Of course, you do need a good understanding of positional ideas and strategic plans to master this opening.

In this guide, using illustrative games, GM Yannick Pelletier tells you everything you need to know about the Najdorf Variation. You get a complete and logical repertoire which gives you a good weapon against the main lines and the side lines which currently are very popular, even at the top level. The course also includes a database with 250 carefully selected games, many with analyses and annotations by Yannick Pelletier.

In this database you will find recommendations to deepen your theoretical knowledge. At the end of the course there is an interactive test of your knowledge of the Najdorf Variation. You are given a number of critical positions and are asked to enter a move. Afterwards your proposal, right or wrong, receives feedback from the author.
