I want to play and learn the Najdorf Sicilian. I know that white has three main options:

6.Bg5 6.Be3 6.Bc4

But I don't know much more than that. Furthermore, I want to play the Open Sicilian as white and against the Najdorf play 6.Bg5, so I think for me it's worth learning these variations.

Should I get Starting Out: Najdorf Sicilian?

  • This link might be useful for the question on the book "Starting Out: Najdorf Sicilian" (it also contains comments on some other popular Najdorf books).

In general I would recommend the Starting Out repertoires for anyone under 2000 FIDE.

  • Also, if you are 1400 USCF I would definitely recommend a Starting Out book but also trying to find whatever model games you can, maybe Fischer's to start with.

  • Sorry, I am new to this site. Do you think the chess24 video series would be too advanced for me? Is it good?

  • It is pretty good, I'm not sure if it is too advanced or not to be honest. The presenters are usually pretty clear.
