    The Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian Defence continues to be extremely popular, both with top grandmasters and club players. And for very good reasons: it is a flexible, ambitious, wonderfully rich and diverse system, offering one of the best ways for Black to play for a win. Both Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov achieved great successes with their beloved Najdorf.

     

    In this book, Grandmaster Zaven Andriasyan presents a groundbreaking attacking repertoire for Black. He analyses a large number of recent games from top players such as Topalov, Gelfand and Grischuk, explaining the various tactical and positional themes.

     

    Revisiting all major Najdorf battlegrounds Andriasyan radically overturns chess opening theory that was developed during decades. He manages to find an astonishing number of improvements: all in all he presents more than two hundred novelties. A must-read for Najdorf lovers!

      A Dynamic Weapon Against the Sicilian
      In this completely revised second edition, the author probes the secrets of this gambit with tactical acuity and strategic objectivity. He concludes that "Most of Black's defensive systems objectively offer acceptable prospects in a complicated battle. Nevertheless, I can promise that every talented attacking player who studies the Morra Gambit will achieve excellent practical results.

    • EBOOK - Fighting the Anti-Sicilians
      Combating 2. c3, the Closed, the Morra Gambit and Other Tricky Ideas
      The Sicilian Defence is by far Black's most popular answer to 1. e4 at all levels of chess. The reason for this is easy to understand: from the very first move Black unbalances the position and can play for a win without needing to take unjustified risks. This is particularly the case with the Open Sicilian, where Black can take comfort from the knowledge that his superior pawn structure ensures control of the centre and excellent long-term chances.
