Who are the leading experts on openings such as Nimzo Indian, Slav defense, Semi-Slav defense, Sicilian-Taimanov, etc? It would be nice to know as it would help me in my study of master games.
Look at who plays those opening frequently. If someone responds with the Slav in 80% of their games against 1. d4, and they're a GM, you can be sure they're a leading expert -- regardless of if they write on it or not.
Nimzo - Kramnik, Karpov's old games
Slav and Semi-Slav - Shirov, Anand
Sicilian Taimanov - Mamedyarov, Movsesian
how about for the rest of the main openings: caro, french, ruy lopez, sicilian-najdorf, etc?
