The Najdorf Explained (6.Bc4 with 7.Bb3 continued)
Hello. In my last blog, I analyzed white's two of four continuations after 7.b5 from black. We have seen: C1) 8.Qe2 and C2) 8.f4. Today we are just going to look at line C3) 8.Bg5. This is one of white's sharpest variations to play, so black has to play extra carefully, or the black king's head might roll.
Now, black has two options, with the lowest being the most popular.
In my next blog, I will look at white's most popular continuation after 7.e6, which is 8.0-0.
