    • Starting Out - Sicilian Najdorf
      he Sicilian Najdorf is one of Black's sharpest and most popular lines against 1 e4. From the very start Black directs the game into asymmetrical positions in which he or she can play for the win without unjustified risk. For this reason the Najdorf has been a firm favourite amongst the very elite of world chess, including Garry Kasparov and, before him, Bobby Fischer. In Starting Out: Sicilian Najdorf Richard Palliser takes a fresh look at this famous opening.
