The Najdorf- Scheveningen

By Women Grandmaster Josefine Heinemann

Running Time :  

Welcome everyone! In my course „The Najdorf-Scheveningen“ I will show you how to play this hybrid-setup. I’ve used it for more than ten years and it always brought me very good results.
It’s a very fighting opening, leading to unclear positions, which require good calculation, but apart from that also good understand of the structures! If you know the recurring patterns in this opening, you’ll be able to earn a lot of points. Knowing the ideas in positions is even more imporant than knowing a lot of moves in the opening because you’ll be able to use those ideas again and again even if you’ve never seen the position – may it be because you forgot the line or because your opponent simply played something that you never looked at before. Therefore I provide you with a few basic patterns to explain the ideas of my favorite opening. Additionally to these explanatory videos I will obviously also cover theory, the main lines being quite complex and also requiring quite some knowledge, but also with sidelines, where I tried to keep it as simple as possible, just to show you a reliable setup, where you don’t need to remember lots of moves and subtleties.I believe this is the best approach because it will make it much easier to recall the right moves over the board even if you hadn’t looked at the particular line in a while. I hope you will like the opening and the ideas that I will show you. I wish you a lot of fun and success with the Najdorf-Scheveningen.
