Learn the Najdorf: English Attack 1 | Chess Openings Explained – NM Caleb Denby

National Master Caleb Denby continues his series on the Najdorf. In part 5, learn about the English Attack or the Byrne Attack, the modern main line with 6.Be3.

B90 Sicilian, Najdorf, Byrne (English) attack


  1. why not just record another day when you had access to your notes?

  2. For white 1. e4 players, try 8. Rg1 in response to 7. …Be7, deep tactical lines that will give you advantage. If najdorf player, Id recommend 8. …Be6 before 8… Be7 (though obviously Rg1 doesnt "refute" Be7)

  3. I don't understand why everyone immediately goes into variations without even explaining why the Najdorf positions are exactly that way and their purpose. You guys just play with simulation games instead of explaining the foundation of the openings.

  4. These videos are golden. Thank you for making these and explaining the lines so well!

  5. I've never considered h5 before! It seems so good now

  6. I really appreciate this theory class. I just restructured my opening reps and this is exceedingly helpful to get up and running.

  7. No worries Caleb, it takes a lot of talent to remember all these variations under pressure. I think you did a great job with the tech difficulties! Thanks for the content guys

  8. Brilliant video! Excellent addition to my repertoire 🙂

  9. I am typically a d4 player, but this video just makes me want to play e4 hoping for c5 sicilian to castle O-O-O for english attack. Great video!
