what line of 6.Bg5 doesn't look scary?


I mean compared to other lines of 6. Ag5 even it looks scary.

Can anyone who has the book comment on the Anti-Sicilian Appendix mentioned on the contents page of the sample ?


It is a discussion on what to chose against the Anti-Sicilians as a Najdorf player (not a full repertoire). The main topics are 2. Nc3 and the Moscow variation.

I dare say that this line looks scary for Black ever since I looked at this 15 years ago. I wonder what he recommends in the 13...0-0 line.


what line of 6.Bg5 doesn't look scary? There's always the Petroff!

Sorry , 
13.-Bg5, -Nc5, or -0-0
  

1.Nf3! -  beat your opponent by killing his zest for life.

I have bought it, couldn't help myself! I normally play the Kan, and have been looking at the Sveshnikov, but really want to learn the Najdorf as well, lol. Haven't had a look at the details yet, but I like the idea with mixed lines and whole annotated games.


Could you tell what is the line against 6.Bg5?

6.-e6 7.f4 Be7 8.Qf3 Qc7 9.0-0-0 Nbd7 10.g4 b5 11. Bxf6 Nxf6 12. g5  Nd7 13. f5 and now what?

13.-0-0 or 13.-Bb7?

13...Bb7 is a blunder there, so weird question

Re 6. Bg5, in the other thread I wondered about the choice(s) against 10. g4 and 10. Bd3.

I'll hazard a guess that the book may not have anything to say about Carlsen's curious 6...e6 7. f3.  (Something for the next Open Sicilians update?)
