In short this provides: A tried and tested repertoire against some of the most common and most solid black lines, presented by an established GM author An emphasis on understanding the themes and key ideas rather than a maze of complex variations Up to date game references and analysis that will stand the test of time About the Author(s) Alexander Delchev is European Grand Prix winner in 2004.

    CLEARANCE - Rubinstein Complex of the Nimzo-Indian
    Catalog Code: CB0007XX

    The Nimzo-Indian Defense has been the most enduring and popular contribution to the theory of chess openings by iconoclast and trailblazer Aaron Nimzowitsch. The moves 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 comprise the jumping-off point for the Nimzo-Indian Defense. Akiba Rubinstein, a classicist only four years older than Nimzowistch, formulated the response 4. e3, which starts the Rubinstein Complex. He often intended to continue Nge2, planning to recapture on e3 with the Knight.
