Hardly any other opening enjoys such a good reputation and is so feared by White players after 1. e4: We are of course talking about the Najdorf Variation in the Sicilian Defense! This two-part Fritz Trainer offers you a complete repertoire against all the possibilities that White has tried against the Najdorf Opening on move 6 after the opening moves 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6.

The Najdorf Variation combines aggressive attacking chess with deep strategic plans, so there is something for every type of player! White players have not yet been able to find ways to gain an opening advantage, so it is not surprising that the Najdorf Opening is considered one of the best and most frequently played openings ever. In the first part of the video series, we will look at White's four main moves: 6. Bg5, 6. Be3, 6. Be2 and 6. Bc4. In addition, this Fritz trainer contains over 20 positions to play out in order to reinforce the most important positions from our repertoire. The opening app can also be used to practice the repertoire. Test how much you have already internalized the move sequences!
