A Yugoslav attack in the Sicilian Najdorf?

  • #1

    As White, can you play a Yugoslav-style attack in the Sicilian Najdorf?  (As I understand it, the Yugoslav attack just means you castle queenside and then pawnstorm the kingside, probably with a bishop along the a2-g8 diagonal)

    Why is the Yugoslav attack typically mentioned against the Dragon but not typically against the Najdorf?

  • #2

    That setup is called the english attack and is used against the najdorf too. In the dragon the specific variation is called the yugoslav attack.

  • #3

    The Yugoslav attack is where you put a bishop on e3, then play Qd2 f3 g4 and h4. In the nardorf it is the same but called the English attack
