The Najdorf variation in the Sicilian Defence has a legendary reputation as a counter-attacking weapon for Black. It is an opening where people often strive for a full point, instead of simply defending the position with the black pieces. Many great players have contributed to the development of this complex opening. Two world champions used the Najdorf variation as their weapon of choice against 1 e4: Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. Both players celebrated spectacular successes with it, retaining it as an important part of their repertoire throughout their entire careers. For chess amateurs and professionals alike it is a great moment when the world's leading expert shares all the secrets of his favourite opening. In part one Garry Kasparov introduced the various subsystems of the Najdorf, including the central 'Poisoned Pawn' variation. Part two was devoted to the main lines against 6 Bg5 e6 7 f4, including the legendary Polugaevsky Variation. In Part three he examines the move 6 Be3 which is today considered the main line of the Najdorf. The DVD contains more than five hours of first-class private video tuition. The package includes the latest ChessBase 9.0 Reader, a big reference database featuring all relevant Najdorf games, as well as a complete opening book that can be used to practice what you have learnt with Fritz. System requirements: PC (minimum 233 MHz and 32 MB RAM, recommended 1 GHz, 256 MB), DVD drive, Windows Vista or XP, sound card, Windows Media Player 9 or higher (for the multimedia lessons)
