Flexible Variation
I have spent a lot of time looking at the variation 4 Nf3 b6 5 Bg5 h6 6 Bh4 g5 7 Bg3 Ne4 8 Qc2 Bb7 9 e3 etc. and I have all the well known books. 
I find it hard to get comfortable as Black in l...

Sadler v Emms 1997
In this game I think that 25...Kf8 just loses after 26.Qh4 e.g. 26...Rd6 27.Rh8+ Ng8 28.Qh7 or 27...Ke7 28.dxe5, or 26...Ke7 27.dxe5 Qc5+ 28.Kh1 Qxe5 29.Re1. 26...Rxd4 may be blacks best chance, but t...

Nimzo/ ...e6 complex vs. d4 Openings
I've always been a KID player but recently the burden of "latest theory" has become a bit much for me.  And I've determined that I'm more of a solid player than a cutthroat one.  Thus, I've been consi...

NID Rubinstein/Saemisch Hybrid
I have a quick question about the Rubinstein system. I recently had a game, which started out with the following moves: 1. d4 e6 2. c4 Nf6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e3 b6
So far, so good. Now White played 5....

Nimzo 4.Bd2
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Bd2
This line has come up more than a few times when I've had black.  As far as I can tell, black's best either lies in c5 or d5, I'm not sure of which.  However, b6 ...

What do you think is Black's most dynamic response to 4. Qc2 in the Nimzo? The main line with 4...0-0 seems to lead to positions where white has a small edge due to his bishop but the position is of c...

Classical Nimzo
Hi John,
Is it my imagination, or is the 4 Qc2 0-0 mainline leading to a draw? Baburin had two games (continuing 5 a3 Bxc3+ 6 Qxc3 b6 7 Bg5 Bb7 8 e3 d6 9 f3 Nbd7 10 Bd3 Rc8 11 Ne2 c5 12 Qb3) a...

NI : 4.e3 b6 5.f3!? variation
Hello ! I was wondering why this variation is not seen more often, as it looks quite logical for white.

Any tho...

The recent Gazza-Mickey clash in the 4 Qc2 Nimzo set me thinking - that went 4 Qc2 d5 5 a3 Bxc3+ 6 Qxc3 Ne4 7 Qc2 Nc6 8 e3 e5. Now there have been goodness knows how many grandmaster games in the last...
