Sicilian Defence Najdorf 6.Be3

I beat a master level chess engine in the Main Line Sicilian Najdorf 6.Be3. Winning is about seeing threats in both directions. If I'm good at tactics then I'm good at chess. I train every day. My puzzles rating on lichess is 2206. My chess.com tactics rating is 2134. I've done Chessimo tactics for 10 years in all openings.

My tactical skills avoided Tinker trouble. I had nothing in the center or on the kingside. My only hope was to queen a queenside pawn. The computer thought it was winning until it devoured my h-pawn. Then it was too late.

[My Main Line 1...c5 Playbook is available in Kindle and paperback. This covers the Sicilian Defence Najdorf and the King's Indian Defence both for Black.]
