Hi everyone!
Recently i read some thoughts of Aagard concerning the opening. He states that one should start backwards (possible endgames-typical middlegame motifs) and only then go back to specific variations
I was wondering if someone can give me a hint about the possible endgames in the Taimanov. I am interested in variations suggested by Delchev-Semkov in their book "The safest Sicilian"
a) B44 positions where White doesn't play 5. Nc3 (this means c4 or Bf4)
b) B46 5. Nc3 a6
c) B47 5. Nc3 Qc7 6. g3/Be2
d) B48 5. Nc3 Qc7 6. Be3 a6 7. Bd3 / Qd2 (the english attack)
e) B49 5. Nc3 Qc7 6. Be2 a6 7. Be3

Any suggestion are welcomed!
P.S. I have already created some smaller databases and mostly i would like to know what type of pawn structures should i look for and of course material searches (e.g. rook and bishop vs rook and knight)
thx!

Try the complete games in the book. They are lightly annotated, but they illustrate the middle games and endgames you'll get.
Alternatively you could look up some annotated games by Delchev, Anand, Rublevsky (though I think he plays the a6 move-order), Carlsen (I think he also plays it), Werle (a bit chauvinistic maybe) and from Ulfje Andersson, which go into the endgame.
  

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

Shereshevsky wrote an excellent book, broken up into two volumes: Mastering the Endgame.  Volume 1 covers the open and semi-open games, and volume 2 the closed games.  They would have everything you could want on this subject, I think.
