The NimzoIndian Defence continues to be one of Blacks most reliable ways of meeting the queens pawn opening. It is popular at all levels of chess and a constant source of anxiety for White players. How can White find a worthwhile line against this incredibly firm defence? How can White set his Nimzo opponent difficult tasks from the outset? Perhaps its time to look somewhere different from the welltrodden main lines. In this book GM Chris Ward investigates unusual white tries, including three uncompromising and underrated ways of battling against the Nimzo: the Smisch (4 a3), the Leningrad (4 Bg5) and the 4 f3 variation. Each line is ideal for putting your opponent under immediate pressure from the start of the game. By studying the various strategies and tactics in these variations, White players can confidently arm themselves with three new menacing lines against the Nimzo, while Black players must again search carefully for antidotes! All the principal lines are covered Written by a renowned NimzoIndian expert Explains the basic elements, strategies and tactics for both sides Ideal for club and tournament players 144 pages
