Definitely an important figure in the chess world & musical. He will be missed. My condolences to his family & friends.

He actually wrote a book,"How I became Fischer's victim". but I cannot find it anywhere.

Musical or music ? Can't think of anything more annoying than watching musicals.

Definitively true. Sicilian Taimanov will be always remebered.

Me neither. The title could be slightly different and one source says it is a brochure, not a book. The most I have found is the following:

He will be missed....A legend..a Great opening Theorist.....His Taimanov variation (sicilian) lives on!!....Many will remember him only for losing 6-0 the Robert J. Fischer in a World Champs KO match but he was much much more than that...RIP GM Taimanov!! We Salute You!! :cry: 8-)
