The Sicilian Taimanov enjoys to be one of the greatest dynamic opening choices for Black. The resulting positions are rich in dynamic, positional and strategic play.
Our authors have tried to deliver a user-friendly style for all levels of the players. Nowadays, chess players are overwhelmed with piles of information and endless databases. It is very difficult to choose "your variations” and therefore this book will surely come as a great additional help.
In addition to the basic Taimanov ideas we had to keep, we followed in an original manner our two main concepts: ‘almost never play an early ... d6’ (Scheveningen style) and ‘push ... h5 whenever you can’ (Paulsen style).
At the end of the book we carefully selected some practical exercises, enabling you to even improve your knowledge of this up-to-date Taimanov Bible.
