MAJOR Update in the New 2012 Edition!

GM Georgiev guides us through the sharpest lines of the Najdorf, the Sozin and Poisoned Pawn, enthusiastically championing Black's cause. Considerable changes have been made in the latter, taking advantage of new discoveries in the line with 7... h6.

Co-author GM Kolev takes the helm against the English Attack, and quiet 6.Be2/a4, advocating the direct Najdorf approach, ...e5, at the proper moment. In this edition, the English Attack with 7.Nb3 Be6 8.f3 is met with ...h5, after which some novel ideas are presented. A wider repertoire is offered against 6.g3, as both e6 and e5 are covered in detail.

The moves 6.Qf3 and 6.h3 have been given more scrutiny due to their recent surge in popularity.

Sidelines are thoroughly covered: the Moscow Variation (3.Bb5+), Alapin (c3), Closed Sicilian, and any serious White option after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6. More than one choice is offered in critical lines for flexibility, and to keep ahead of theory.

This is a thorough repertoire book which explains the ideas and plans in every key position --- yet also digs deeper --- enabling one put these new ideas into practice readily, and then refer back to the in depth coverage after some over the board encounters with the new recommendations.
