As the author recommends 11…Nxd4 it’s a mute point!kylemeister wrote on 05/27/22 at 22:38:34:
I'll go ahead and throw out a wee question for later (or maybe for Semko now ...).  Assuming the book addresses the position after 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cd 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 e6 6. Be2 a6 7. 0-0 Be7 8. f4 0-0 9. Be3 Nc6 10. a4 Qc7 11. Kh1 Re8 12. Bf3, I wonder if it advocates a particular move there.

One thing I noticed in ECO-B2 (2021) is that 12...Rb8 was given as unclear or equal; I recall that in the past it was thought to be better for White via 13. g4.

The most recent work covering this line was Chessable’s huge work, Lifetime Repertoire on the Taimanov, that recommends 12…Nxd4 followed by …e5.

No book covers 12…Rb8 that I know of, 12…Na5 was covered by Ftaknic in GM Repertoire 6 and 12…Bf8 was covered by Emms in Play The Najdorf Scheveningen Style.

I’ve had this position quite a few times in OTB games.

I followed your link and saw an extensive list of chess books from Chess Stars Publishing. Following a link on a title takes me to Forwardchess.com. Many of the Chess Stars publishing books are available for purchase at Forwardchess.com, but some are not. Does Chess Stars sell books directly to the customer?

The Taimanov-Scheveningen Hybrid
by Semko Semkov
~250 pages, Chess-Stars, June 2022

This book offers a full repertoire based on the Taimanov move order 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nc6! 5.Nc3 Qc7. It is especially effective against the English attack and early kingside pawn storms. However, the fianchetto 6.g3 and the Classical system with 6.Be3 a6 7.Be2 pose certain problems. I propose to meet them with the Sheveningen set-up ...d6. Thus we take the best of two different worlds. […]
