About The How to Play the Najdorf, Vol. 1 - Kasparov

It is an opening where people often strive for a full point, instead of simply defending the position with the black pieces.

Many great players have contributed to the development of this complex opening. There were two world champions who formed much of their careers using the Najdorf system as their weapon of choice against 1.e4: Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov celebrated spectacular successes with it. Both players used the Najdorf (pronounced "ny-dorff", rhyming with "high-dwarf") during their child prodigy years and retained it as an important part of their repertoire during their entire careers. For Garry Kasparov this added up to experience with the Najdorf at the very highest levels of chess.

For chess amateurs and professionals alike it is a great moment when the world's leading expert shares all the secrets in his favorite opening. In part one Garry Kasparov introduces the various sub-systems of the Najdorf, including the central Poisoned Pawn variation. The development of each line is placed in historical perspective and examined in great depth, with Kasparov's characteristic intensity.
