En utmerket repertoarbok for svart med det som tradisjonelt er kalt Paulsen-Siciliansk: 1 e4 c5 2 Sf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Sxd4 a6 (Kan) eller 4...Sc6 (Taimanov), som også dekker andre valg fra hvits side i tredje trekk. Dette er fleksible, men også krevende systemer å spille.

Forlagets egen omtale

This book is a follow up to 'The Safest Sicilian' and offers a double Taimanov/Kan repertoire for Black based on 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6! It is divided in several parts: playing against Be2; against f4, g3, the third rank set-up Be3 plus Bd3, the English Attack and the Hedgehog structures.

There are separate chapters for the Taimanov move order with 4...Nc6, and for the Kan with 4...a6. Another section of the book deals with the anti-Sicilian variations 3.d3, 3.c3, 3.g3, 3.c4, 3.b4, 3.Nc3.

The Taimanov and Kan pawn structures are almost identical so many ideas work in both variations. At the same time the different move order offers subtleties which may turn decisive for the outcome of the opening battle.

Delchev believes that the Sicilian players should know the full range of set-ups after 2...e6. That would allow to choose the most unpleasant system against any particular opponent. For instance, if the White player is narrowly specialised in the English Attack, you may choose to delay ...Nc6.

This approach effectively discourages White's set-up with Be3. It is also very good against the fans of an early f4 or the fianchetto with g3. Every part begins with a chapter named "Pros and Cons" which discuses the main ideas of the Taimanov and the Kan approaches and offers advice what to choose.

The next chapters "Step by Step" present detailed theory. Finally a chapter "Complete Games" offers deep annotations to important games.
