Sicilian Defence Taimanov Hector

The Sicilian Defence gives players opportunities to develop an almost endless amount of creative tactical possibilities. Black chose the Taimanov with a pawn on e6. This defense covered d5 until Black played 11...e5. White posted bishops on c4 and a3. One slight slip and Grandmaster Jonny Hector struck immediately in this game against Matts Unander.
