Présentation de l'éditeur

This new series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.

In this book, John Emms examines his favourite Sicilian variation, which is one of Black’s most reliable answers to 1 e4. He shares his knowledge from over 15 years studying and playing the Sicilian Taimanov at grandmaster level, examines the opening from both sides of the board and offers answers to the all the key question.

* Essential guidance and training in the Sicilian
* Utilizes an ideal approach to opening study
* Includes a Sicilian Taimanov repertoire for Black

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Parfait! 13 décembre 2012
Par colin
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Excellent livre, et celà pour plusieurs points:

La série Move by Move est aboutie, très ludique avec son système de questions/réponses, contenant le meilleur moyen se s'initier à une ouverture de mon point de vue: des parties complètes annotées (et non un arbre de coups théoriques). le choix est récent et pertinent,

Le livre est bien écrit, avec quelques pointes d'humour jamais déplaisantes!

et surtout, le plus important: le thème est respecté. ça parait évident, mais concernant cette ouverture que je joue depuis pas mal de temps, j'ai souvent eu entre les mains des ouvrages qui tapaient un peu à côté, conseillant souvent des transpositions dans des structures type scheveningen (i.e. en poussant d6 rapidement). Or, dans celui-ci, on insiste dans un style purement Taïmanov, avec un pion en d7, un roque retardé, une poussée h5 fréquente, etc...
Les parties sélectionnées mettent bien en valeur la flexibilité et le dynamisme de l'ouverture, fait le tour de pas mal d'idées spécifiques.

Franchement, du très bon travail !

Tres clairement expliquee de maniere progressive. La Taimanov est comme la Sicilienne Kan a la fois solide et flexible, necessitant moins de theorie que les autres variantes. Etant a la base un joueur de Francaise, j'ai ete amene a la Taimanov par l'ordre de coup suivants : 1. e4 e6 2. Cf3 c5 3. d4 cxd4 4, Cxd4 ce qui m'a permis a present de varier mon ouverture sur 1. e4 avec les Noirs. Je le recommande fortement car cette variante peut être utile en semi rapide ou sa robustesse fait perdre l'adversaire au temps.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent introduction to this Sicilian variation 12 octobre 2012
Par Joshua Newsham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Opening books are harder to review than, say, middlegame and endgame books. I've seen many lauded opening manuals appear, only to be exposed as either full of errors (or perhaps one critical error that makes the entire repertoire dubious), or basically rip-offs (database dumps, copying earlier material without attribution, etc.). It takes a while for the public to know for sure if an opening book is quality.

Emms' Sicilian Taimanov: Move by Move interested me because I had never played the Taimanov, but had played the Paulsen/Kan and Scheveningen lines, and wanted to check out this "cousin" variation.

So far, I am completely impressed. The "Question and Answer" format is generally well used - the answers were good punctuations; they helped me to see that it was an important moment in the opening or game, and to take special notice.

Emms has played this opening for years, and clearly teaches us the thematic ideas of this line (in one fairly popular line, Black early on swaps his Queen and a Pawn for 3 minor pieces - a nice imbalance from which to outplay weaker or less prepared players).

If you are looking for a new, or a first, Sicilian to play as Black, the Taimanov seems ideal - much less theory than the Najdorf or Dragon, with many of the themes being typical to the "e6 Sicilians". If you master the Taimanov, I expect you will do at least as well as if you studied a more theoretical Sicilian (I am not talking about IM-GM level play, of course), and your "upkeep" should be easier - fewer 2700s playing your opening means less new material to have to find and digest.

If you care, my current USCF rating is 2159. Good luck in your Sicilian adventures!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Outstanding and Comprehensive Review of the Taimanov! 29 janvier 2013
Par Cybertal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
John Emms is a well known chess author, with numerous awards and accolades for the quality of his efforts. One of his latest efforts, The Sicilian Taimanov - Move By Move, easily matches the quality of his previous writings.

I'm a longtime Sicilian player, but wanted to give up the Najdorf for something quieter. Knowing virtually nothing about the Taimanov, this book was an outstanding choice not only to grasp the thematic basics of the variation but to start on some of the finer theoretical points of the opening. Emms explains moves and concepts in a manner that I could easily imagine a 1500 grasping without much effort. The Taimanov has several themes that run throughout its variations: well timed ...h5s for counterplay/knight squares, dark square control through pieces rather than pawns, flexibility in placing the dark squared bishop and so forth. Emms repeatedly points out these themes throughout the different lines, explaining when different ideas are appropriate. Instead of simply spewing out the moves and expecting rote memorization, Emms constantly gives thematic signposts that aid in a deeper understanding of the moves.

As happy as this book would make a fairly modestly rated player, this book also made me quite happy (2350 USCF). Emms provides some real theoretical meat here, with serious analysis given of not only the main moves but interesting alternatives that might give Black more dynamic play. Emms provides this analysis with well parsed moves and insightful explanations - the fact that Emms is a longtime Taimanov player is quite evident, as his analysis isn't just vomited up from the bowels of the latest and greatest computer engine. Emms is also an outstanding writer. His words are never used clumsily, and always provide insight with occasional wit.

This book will provide outstanding instruction for even low rated players who are looking for a solid Sicilian variation that won't be threatened by the latest Houdini generated novelty at move 25. Emms makes this easily navigable to low rated players and still makes it theoretically relevant to higher rated players.

Five out of five stars, highly recommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A comprehensive, well-explained repertoire for meeting the open Sicilian 23 février 2013
Par Silver Moose - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I used to play the Najdorf but decided to give it up because, while I enjoyed the complicated strategical play, I felt that many variations were so tactical and theoretical that victory would go to the best memory, not the best chessplayer. The Taimanov is a more solid, less theoretical, alternative to the Najdorf that retains the rich, positional play I enjoy in the open Sicilian.

I agree with the previous reviews regarding the very high quality of this book. I had never played the Taimanov before reading this book, but Emms clearly explains all of the strategical and tactical concepts of this opening. Emms's repertoire choices are excellent, and he provides coverage of all significant White choices after 4. ...Nc6. Emms is also flexible: in many cases Emms provides Black more than one alternative to a White strategy, and against one early White deviation, Emms recommends a variation of the Sicilian four knights as providing better play than a Taimanov-style setup.

An important feature of this book is that there are no holes in the repertoire. This book is written in a game format, and sometimes authors writing in this format neglect to consider important variations. This can't be said of Emms. For about the first 80% of the book, I studied along with a database to see whether there were any popular White moves that Emms failed to consider. I did not find this to be the case even once.

This may be the best opening book I have ever read, although Daniel King's old Winning with the Najdorf also impressed me greatly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best Sicilian books out there! 23 octobre 2013
Par nimzo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
It's easy to read and follow the Taimanov Sicilian ideas in this well written book. The Move by Move format is by far the best way to not only learn a given opening but also understand why each crucial move is made and for what plan. This format makes it comparable to a light 'workbook' as at the end of various book sections the author asks - find the best plan for black - or what's the best square for the black Queen? So instead of blindly memorizing different moves in a given variation we are forced to know where to move should the position change and adjust our plan accordingly. Most opening books will do us no good when the opponent decides to play 'out-of-book' ; not with the Move by Move series. GM Emms is an accomplished chess professional with 15 years of Sicilian Taimanov playing experience. Great book!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Emms teaches the Taiminov 27 mars 2015
Par Randy - Publié sur Amazon.com

I decided to return to the Sicilian after several years of playing the Pirc (with unspectacular results). I had played the Four Knights Sicilian quite a bit before, and thought about returning to that tried and proved opening of my past, but the book I had was in print and its very hard to do any chess study at home with a wife and kid. So after being a happy customer from the kindle purchase of his book on the Nimzo, I decided to see what the Taiminov was about. Its typical of other e6 sicilians where its quiter and more strategic with the break d5 in mind. Its not so different than what I use to play in the Four Knights and many of the ideas are similar, but there seems to be more GM's that take up the Taiminov than the 4K, not exactly sure why, I guess there is more of a chance for a lingering advantage for white in the 4K main lines. This opening is actually great for guys like me, that do not have time to remember trees of variations and can rely more on the right moves rather than worrying with tactical blows at every turn.

Anyways, the book is laid out ideally for readers, complete GM games with detailed but not dry analysis, He stops at certain important points and asks the reader what the correct plan for black is here and makes you think so you can better remember. Its more practical a layout than the boring books they churn out that are divided into trees (I can't deal with that nonsense). The verbose is very clear and the author has experience (just as with the Nimzo) with the Opening. I'm around 1900 player, but I guess just about any player with a good enough foundation can pick this book up and learn this opening and feel very comfortable when playing it, even expert/master level players.

My only gripe, is more with the publisher-- why is the digital price for these move by move books so high?
