Sicilian Defense: Najdorf Variation, Adams Attack

Flip board


  • 23 months ago


    The idea is that even if black plays e5, then white can opt for castling both long (and "simply" pushing the pawns) or castling short (and bayonet attack among others). As white would usually like to expand/attack on the kingside, the g4 move (which is almost always played) offers a lasting space advantage. Relocating the knight to g3 makes the king safe in short castling. I'm seriusly considering this for my repertoire against the Najdorf, since it's sound and has a considerable surprise value.

    Well, if blacks are planning to make "Scheveningen" moving their pawn to e6 then 6.h3 might be the waist of time lol Laughing as Keres showed us with his g2->g4 attack.
