The Taimanov Variation is one of Black's most flexible approaches to the Sicilian. With his "ideal" move order, Black maintains plenty of options while sidestepping some of White's most dangerous attacking plans. The main game-plan is counterattack, but unlike in many Sicilian lines, Black can tailor his plan of development according to how White arranges his pieces.
