When choosing an opening repertoire, it is common to consider two types of variations. One is usually a solid opening, like 1...e5 against 1.e4, with plenty of strategical ideas and quiet paths of play. However, there are of course days when you want to play for a win with Black, when you want to bear down on your opponents position with a potentially crushing attack. The Najdorf is perfect for just such occasions and its no coincidence that Garry Kasparov played it the most out of all the variations in the Sicilian the opening served him well throughout his brilliant career. I myself have played it with both colours, but even I discover more to its endless depths every day! Strategy, combinations, attack and defence, sacrifices and marvelous manoeuvres exciting chess is all about the Najdorf!
