A comprehensive guide through the Najdorf Sicilian jungle that enables you to find your way to security and initiative with the black pieces.
The so called “rare lines” have become extremely popular in recent times, so we offer you a single volume “solution” to all the nuances and complications that may arise in these less common lines.
Over the years some of the variations covered in this book got a strong following among the professionals and amateurs alike (6.h3 in particular), while some remained less explored and essayed only by the very elite (6.a3, or 6.Qd3).
IM Szuhanek presents you his deep and diligent analysis of all the possible (and reasonable) White tries with focus on more common lines. Throughout the book you will find many improvements for both sides, but with author’s clear preference for the black side.
Now you got a highly practical weapon to tackle all the White’s pesky Najdorf options!
Daniel "Danny" Gormally (1976) became an International Master in 1997 and a Grandmaster in 2005. He was born in South Shields and was brought into the game of chess by his father at the age of 7. Besides distinguished tournament results he played for the England national team in European Championships and Chess Olympiad. Danny Gormally is also an acclaimed chess author and analyst.
Danny Gormally is a Chess Grandmaster stuck in a fugue state. He has forgotten how to analyse - blinded by the brilliance of chess engines, every time he gets stuck he turns on the machine. In this book he attempts to discover his love of analysis and the game of chess by attempting different methods of analysis and calculation. He asks what separates the analysis methods of an amateur player with a Grandmaster, and further still what separates the very best players from super computers. It all culminates in the mind-bogglingly complex "Impossible quiz" where some of the most skilled players in chess are confronted by extremely complex positions.
If that sounds off-putting it shouldn't be - Gormally breaks down the material in a way that is comprehensible to any amateur player.
