The Taimanov Sicilian

Introduction

Robin van Kampen, Gibraltar, April 2015

Hi, and welcome to my second project for chess24! For those of you familiar with my first series on the King's Indian Defence, you have my favourite repertoire for Black against 1.d4. In this series I offer you my favourite against 1.e4. The Taimanov (also known as the Paulsen) arises after the moves:

1. e4 c5 2. ♘f3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. ♘xd4 ♘c6 5. ♘c3 ♕c7

For a long time the Taimanov never appealed much to me, as it's a bit slower than other lines in the Sicilian like the Najdorf and the Dragon, which tend to be sharper. But the variation underwent a renaissance in 2013 and I became interested in the opening after studying the games of Russian GM and former European Champion Vladimir Potkin.

We will examine all principal lines White can play, and offer you recommendations against each one, as well as give you a general feeling of how to play this opening and handle the common structures that arise. First off, let's look at the English Attack, one of the most common and universal ways White can confront the Sicilian. Enjoy!
