Uncovering the Anti-Sicilians! A dynamic grandmaster repertoire against 1.e4 Vol.3

Who hasn’t experienced it? You’re prepared for an exciting game in the open Najdorf Sicilian, and suddenly your opponent puts one of the seemingly countless minor variations on the board - in order to avoid the main Najdorf variations. Should you be frustrated? Absolutely not! This Fritztrainer offers you the perfect addition to any Sicilian or Najdorf repertoire, and covers all the minor variations that White has tried to avoid the open Sicilian. If you already have the two Fritztrainers covering the Sicilian Najdorf after 5... a6, you have a complete and seamless grandmaster repertoire against 1. e4 at your disposal!

We start our journey through the Anti-Sicilians with the important and very popular 2nd move alternatives, first and foremost the Grand Prix Attack (2. Nc3) and the Alapin Variation (2. c3), but also all other 2nd move minor variations that White has tried - even if you don’t play the Najdorf when you play the Sicilian, this course is suitable for your repertoire! After the main move 2. Nf3 d6, we continue with the alternatives to 3. d4, in particular the extremely popular move 3. Bb5+. The variations 3. d4 cxd4 4. Qxd4!? and the move 5. f3 (which is popular as a surprise weapon) are also covered and, of course, all the other rare variations that White has played on the way to the main variation - nothing can trouble you until you reach the starting position of the Najdorf after 5... a6!

Najdorf Variation

It is astonishing that today’s most important system in the Sicilian starts with the unlikely move 5...a6. The move by the rook’s pawn does nothing for the development of the pieces, so why then does Black play it? Well, it is almost also useful to prevent White’s minor pieces from getting on the b5-square, and in addition it prepares a counter-attack on the queenside with …b7-b5. In certain circumstances there is the threat of ...b4 driving away the Nc3, which puts the e4-pawn under pressure e4. Seen like this, 5...a6 is a preparation for the attack on the white centre! The great rise of the Najdorf Variation – named after the Polish-Argentinian grandmaster Miguel Najdorf (1910–1997) – began in the 1950s. World champions Petrosian, Tal and Fischer played this opening, and Kasparov too was feared because of his precise treatment of the sharp Najdorf lines.
