Getting Started with the Taimanov
For the new year, I'm looking to switch up my main defense against 1 e4 from 1...e5 to the Taimanov Sicilian. I have a little bit of experience in Taimanov positions from both sides,...

Move order problem in Taimanov
In all the books I have on the Taimanov, the following move order is not given, but seems natural enough.
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cd4 4.Nd4 Nc6 5.Nc3 Qc7 6.Be2 a6 7.Be3 Nf6 and now 8.f4 instead of ...

The English Attack against the Taimanov
I just noticed the following forthcoming book by Zaven Andriasian from New In Chess. I've heard great things about Andriasian's Najdorf book but find the following blurb curious:

New Taimanov book by Markus, Perunovic & Ivanisevi
This one looks interesting!
The book on the Rauzer-Kozul looked very comprehensive, so I am very curious about this one.

Recent Paulsen/Kan Book by Delchev/Semkov
I have just received my copy and, unfortunately, I believe the book is a lot worse than even the original 'The safest Sicilian' (A great book). Perhaps cramming too much on one book was wrong, but the...

Transposition after 5.Bd3 Nf6 6.0-0 d6 7.Nc3
I just got a short question regarding transpositions after 5.Bd3, since I haven't played any other Sicilian before I picked up the Kan:
After 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cd4: 4.Nd4: a6 5.Bd3,

Poll: Best line for Black against the g3 - Taimanov???

The Qb6 Sicilian
A hypermodern dynamic defense surprise weapon rarely seen at GM tourneys:
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Qb6!?
At this point White has two major alternatives with 5.Nc3 and 5.Nb3. If Whit...

a3 against e6 Sicilians
In a recent game, I faced the Grivas Sicilian. This went 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Qb6 5. Nb3 e6 . Here I became concerned about Bb4 ideas but decided to allow them. The game continued 6....

Taimanov, annoying line
1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nc6 5. Nc3 Qc7 6. Be2 a6 7. a4 Nf6 8. O-O
This is rare but interesting:
8.-Bb4 9.Bg5 seems good to white.
8.-Nxd4 9.Qxd4 Bd6 is interesting

6. Ndb5 in Taimanov ??? Where are the annotations?

Re: 8....b5 in Taimanov English Attack
Is there a refutation to 8...b5 in the Taimanov against the English Attack?
I saw a database game with N. McDonald where 9.Bf4 e5 was played, and black got in trouble. That doesn't seem forced...
