Santos' White Repertoire against the Sicilian ?
GM Santos has done a White repertoire based on the Open Sicilian.
It consists of two chessable-courses and it looks like the courses are manageable even for busy ( or lazy ) people...

English Attack vs. the Najdorf
The last book I saw from the white perspective covering the English Attack is Dismantling the Sicilian by Jesus de la Villa, 2009. Does anyone know of anything newer?
I have been playing 6f3 with...

Najdorf Poisoned Pawn Repertoire Books
Are there any good (fairly recent) repertoire books, advocating the "Poisoned Pawn" Variation (7...Qb6) vs. 6.Bg5 in the Najdorf, from Black's point of view?

Interesting idea in the Goteborg Variation
1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Bg5 e6 7. f4 Be7 8. Qf3 h6 9. Bh4 g5
is often said to be refuted, I believe (nowadays) mainly due to 10. fxg5 Sfd7 11. Qh...

Najdorf Lifetime Repertoire Giri out on Chessable
Against 6.Bg5, it's 10.g4 h6.
Against 6.Be3, it's the h5 line (as in Vigorito's).
Against 2. Nc3, it's 2..d6.
The rest of the lines seem to be mainline stuff. I've had good experiences ...

Najdorf dvd by Pelletier
Has anyone got this yet ? From the informative video sample, it would appear to complement the Vigorito book. Both go for ..., e5 against almost all options other than Bc4 and Bg5.

Polugaevsky variation busted?
[pgn][Event "Interzonal IT2E"]
[White "Rebord, Mauricio"]
[Black "Rubery, Mark"]
The quiet, untested so far move 18.Kh1! (instead of 18.c4 where Black is doing rather well) does look like a killer.
So, this leaves 14...Qg6 (which is quite unpleasant for Black, and well analysed by Negi and Goh), and 15...Qc7, which may well be Black's last hope, but to be honest Black's position does look very unpleasant to me.

Probably dubious novelty in 6. Bg5 Nbd7 7. Bc4
Today chat reminded me of one of my first ICCF games, which I had finished last year (game moves will be in bold, while variations will be in regular font face). The game began with:
1. e4 c5 ...

It's not something I've ever considered playing or indeed seen any serious theoretical discussion. There however are a number of games that have been played in it and it can transpose to or perhaps fr...

6.Bg5 e6 7.f4 Qc7 line
What’s the theoretical status of 7...Qc7 in the 6.Bg5 line? I remember liking the coverage of this line in the book “Mastering the Najadorf” but I haven’t seen it played that much now. It seemed like ...

Which book for a new player to the Najdorf ?

I recently-ish started playing 1.e4 again, and, following "Modernized: The Open Sicilian", I chose the Adams Attack (6.h3) as my weapon against the Najdorf.
I'm having some decent suc...
