e-book omits Nimzo line
I think I'm right when I say that the current Nimzo e-book, after 1. d4 Nf6  2. c4 e6  3. Nc3 Bb4  4. Nf3, does not consider 4...c5 at all, but only 4...b6 and minor tries.  I understand the the e-boo...

Classical Nimzo Indian
What do people play versus this?  I do like Nimzo positions, but tend to be happier playing verus the bishop pair when white has structural weaknesses.  Hence, 4...00 doesn't always make me feel total...
