SHOPWORN - Nimzo Larsen Attack Catalog Code: SWB0169EMThe Nimzo-Larsen Attack (1. b3) enables White to take his opponent out of his stride from the very first move.

Furthermore, as the games of exponents such as Grandmaster Julian Hodgson have shown, the Nimzo-Larsen Attack often provokes an overreaction by Black, causing him to overextend his position and thereby leave himself open to an early knockout blow.This guide explains the basic elements, strategies and tactics for both sides.

In this book, former US Chess Champion Joel Benjamin teaches you all you need to know about successfully liquidating into pawn endgames.
