Sample pages (pdf)

The Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian Defence 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.

This book is an ambitious project. The author 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. This book is the result of many months of research and analysis. It is one step ahead of the presently established theory, because a lot of the analysis is based on new correspondence and computer games. The author 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 worth studying even for very strong grandmasters. However, weaker players can also benefit from studying the material and trying to understand the complex variations. It will certainly improve their tactical intuition. The book includes a large number of exercises (using critical positions from all the chapters), in which the reader is required to find the best continuation. 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.

Lukasz Jarmula is a Polish chess grandmaster, author, coach and theoretician who devotes a lot of time to theoretical studies on chess and striving to prepare high-quality publications.
