Sicilian Four Knights
Can we have a Cpub update on the Sicilian 4N please? Especially the critical line 6 Nxc6 bxc6 7 e5 Nd5 8 Ne4.
If the 4N is fully viable, it's extremely useful, because after 6 Ndb5 Black has a ch...

Taimanov 5. Nc3 a6 6. Nxc6 bxc6 7. e5
I am investigating the move order 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nc6 5. Cc3 a6 to defuse the English attack, but I am uncomfortable with this variation 6. Nxc6 bxc6 7. e5. Black seems to be laggin...

How is the Taimanov holding up theoretically ?
Many years ago the Taimanov Sicilian was part of my repertoire but these days I don't play it. With a new book on the Taimanov due out in the next month or two so I'm thinking of taking it up again.<b...

Kan with 5 Nc3 d6!?
I got interested in this move order after noticing that some GMs (e.g. Milov) who use it regularly tend to avoid immediate transposition to the Najdorf in favour of delaying kingside development, wait...

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 ...

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...
