The Sicilian Defense, Paulsen System - Chess Opening Software on CD
Sicilian Defense, Paulsen System
The Paulsen System in the Sicilian Defense (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6) consists, after the further moves 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4, of two large subsections: the Paulsen (Kan) Variation (after 4...a6) and the Taimanov Variation (after 4...Nc6). There are numerous transpositions and it is logical for both variations to be treated on a single CD. In addition, Norbert Sommerbauer has also examined all the other sub-variations which fit into B40-B49. The CD offers to the player of the Black pieces an almost complete repertoire against 1.e4, but is also well suited to the player with White, since the author also offers the latter his recommendations.
