James Rizzitano

This guide to the Taimanov Sicilian (1.e4,c5; 2.Nf3,e6; 3.d4,cxd4; 4.Nxd4,Nc6) is aimed at experienced players who want to try the Taimanov for the first time, from either the White or Black side. With this in mind, the emphasis is on explaining typical plans and strategies in the context of 25 extensively annotated, high level, key games. The games have been selected as they illustrate many standard Taimanov Sicilian middlegame and endgame positions and themes.

The material is divided into six chapters: 1) Probing Bishop and Maroczy Bind Variations 5.Nb5, 2) Taimanov Introduction 5.Nc3, a6; 3) White's Sixth Move Alternatives 5.Nc3,Qc7; 4) Flexible Variation 5.Nc3,Qc7; 6.Be2, 5) Sharp Variation 5.Nc3,Qc7; 6.Be3, 6) Paulsen Main Line 5.Nc3,Qc7; 6.Be3,a6; 7.Be2. Chapter introductions and conclusions emphasise the key points of each system.

James Rizzitano is an American I.M. and author with extensive experience playing the Taimanov Sicilian.
