Actually its not so dangerous if black is well prepared, one of most critical variations nowadays seems 6.h3, which is more dangerous than it looks
It's always dangerous. I've been playing the najdorf for years and it's the line that just puts constant pressure on black if he doesn't play the highly theoretical poisoned pawn. I play 6..nbd7 myself
Unless you already played another sicilian, you have to learn those. It will take a while I guess..
everyone .. am looking to play the najdorf bg5, f4 variation ; I'll play black if you can message me; tks ... FEB 2015
I have the easiest answer. AVOID IT! Play 1.d4! (or 1.c4 or 1.Nf3 with intention of transposing to a QP Opening). It scores a full 2% better than 1.e4 in GM play anyway!
I love this guy. (not sarcasm)
