Serbian grandmaster Milos Pavlovic continues his survey of the cutting edge of Open Sicilian opening theory. In this installment he shines the light on the hot topic of the Sicilian Najdorf with 6.Be3. Stay on top of the latest developments in these critical tabiya, and sharpen up your games when the challenge is on the table.

Some of the lines covered in this volume include the Topalov Variation, (6...e6 7.f3 b5 8.Qd2 b4 9.Na4/Nce2), the e6 main lines with h6, a rapid Nb6, and in the Nc6 (Kasparov) system, 10. Be2!?.

After 6... e5, there is an examination of the positional Nf3, and the razor sharp Vallejo Pons Variation, 7.Nb3 Be6 8.f3 Be7 9.Qd2 0-0 10.0-0-0 Nbd7 11.g4 b5 12.g5 b4 13.Ne2 Ne8 14.f4 a5 15.f5. Pavlovic also looks at the offbeat Topalov anti-English Attack system, 7.Nb3 Be6 8.f3 Nbd7 9.Qd2 h5, its mirror image 10... a5, and ideas for White with f4.
