SICILIAN TRANSPOSITION
ORTHODOX VAR. to TAIMANOV / SZEN VARS.

White's Kt completed a pawn exchange on Q4(d4) and threatened KtxKt, P-K5 to hamper Black's KKt.
Black transposes towards the Taimanov line by pushing his King's Pawn out one square. A rarer move, less confrontational than other options. B-Alt.
