This DVD looks at the most important and most frequent tactical themes and sacrifices in the Sicilian Najdorf. Grandmaster Niclas Huschenbeth shows us the typical tactical ideas for both White and Black along with the criteria that need to be met for a particular sacrifice to work in this opening in several demonstrative games. Then it’s your turn to see if you have internalized the themes in a host of interactive tests – but watch out - because the ideas don’t always work, and you will soon learn to recognize typical snares and pitfalls. Working through the material develops both your eye for tactics as well as your calculation of variations. The aim of this DVD is to demonstrate the typical tactical themes of the Sicilian Najdorf and to improve your understanding of them, as well as to practice them with the interactive examples. This way, the demonstrated themes quickly become second nature and viewers gain a much improved feel for tactics in the Najdorf.
