Chess Explained is a new series of books about chess openings. They are not theoretical works in the traditional sense, but more a series of lessons from a chess expert with extensive overtheboard experience with an opening. You will gain an understanding of the opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have. The Taimanov Sicilian is one of the most flexible options for Black in the Open Sicilian. Black avoids committing himself to a rigid setup, and tailors his response once White has shown his hand. This can lead to a great variety of central structures, and the player with the better understanding of typical Sicilian themes will often emerge victorious,Taimanov positions need to be understood well in order to be played well. Many of the postwar World Champions have used the Taimanov, and amongst the current world elite, Anand has played it most frequently. This book covers the Paulsen setup with ...Qc7 in addition to the pure Taimanov with ...Nge7. Softback 112 pages. Dimensions 172 x 248 x 9.91mm, 254.01g
