IM Sam Shankland brings you more on 6. Bg5! in the Najdorf. The conventional lines show white in the clear so Sam offers some solid theory to avoid a very cramped and difficult position for black. The sharpest response offered after 6…e6 7.f4 Be7 8.Qf3 h6! The h6 pawn push prepares for g5! by black. It’s a contested option but offers an exciting game for each side.
