Most people learn an opening by becoming familiar with its typical positional ideas and trying to remember the most important theoretical lines. But this is not enough, especially in an opening as sharp as the notorious Sicilian Najdorf. Here, tactical bloodbaths are commonplace and the player who knows where the weak points are, and how to exploit them, wins.

GM Niclas Huschenbeth brings to you a masterclass of chess tactics in the Sicilian Najdorf, giving you a complete
understanding of the typical tactical patterns for both sides.

The asymmetrical pawn structure gives rise to a multitude of tactical shots and ideas with Black’s play generally focusing on the queenside while White tends to play on the kingside.

By understanding how these attacks come about, which sacrifices work and how to deal with your opponent’s threats, you’ll be the one coming out on top.
