As usual in Najdorf works, 6.h3 is only getting inferior coverage.
Bad news for the unprepared black player, good news for 6.h3 practitioners  Wink

Haven't got the DVD yet, does he do any analysis on 6.h3 e5 7.Nde2?
I know from youtube that he recommends 7...h5 but does he offer further analysis on the DVD?

I reckon he knows it so well, I could pick any language, and he'd be able to talk about the Najdorf in it.

Right then Danny, I'm going to pick at random, oh let's say, German.

OK ... go...

This is one of the dvd's I've always wanted King to make, will be buying it next week sometime. Winning with the Najdorf is also one of my favourite Najdorf books as well.

Some other dvd's on my wish list to be made:

Kasparov on the King's Indian
Kramnik on every opening he's played (hope he never retires though)

edit in:

Couldn't wait, I've only just finished clip 7 but it's excellent so far. It's very clear that he knows the Najdorf inside out, and I haven't yet caught him glancing for notes as other chessbase authors often do, his enthusiasm when he's explaining the strategies for both sides (players from White side will learn something from this DVD too!) is infectious. Simply a must buy for Najdorf players and will convert non Najdorf players.

These are the contents:

Is it worth buying? King's "Winning with the Najdorf" is the reason why I play this opening nowadays.
