Book Description

Grandmaster Repertoire is a new series of high quality chess books based on the main lines, written by strong grandmasters.

The aim is to provide the reader with a complete repertoire at a level good enough for elite tournaments, and certainly also for the club championship. Grandmaster Repertoire provides a repertoire to last a lifetime.

Lubomir Ftacnik is a renowned opening analyst with great experience and expertise in the Sicilian Defense.

In this book he reveals his secrets to provide a complete repertoire for Black against 1.e4 with 1...c5. The meat of the repertoire is the Sicilian Najdorf - the perennial favourite of those who want to attack with Black.

It is no coincidence that Fischer, Kasparov and Anand have all relied on the Najdorf. Naturally, White's less critical tries are also covered, such as the 2.c3, 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+, and the Closed Sicilian.

Lubomir Ftacnik is a chess grandmaster from Slovakia. Despite his numerous international tournament victories, from European Junior Champion in 1977 to winning the World Open in 2008, he is most famous as an opening analyst.
