Curiousity in the Queen's Indian
1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 b6 4. g3 Bb7 5. Bg2 c5
This is supposed to not be very good, but I'll be damned if I can figure out a road to anything for white due to a significant move order nuance on move 9.<br...

Any one playing the queen's indian?
Hi friends! I am trying to learn to play well the complex Nimzo/QI against 1.d4. I think that playing semi slav or King's indian is much more difficult because there are so many forcing lines. Nimzo a...
