What Variation should I play against the Nimzo??
*Takes deep breath*
After playing 1. e4 for quite some time, I'm toying with the idea of either switching to 1. d4, or adopting both. In trying to prepare 1. d4, I have had the most difficultly f...

Nimzo/ ...e6 complex vs. d4 Openings

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...

Why not 4.Qd3?
Why is the move 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Qd3 never played? It covers the Nc3 and prepares e4.
d5 seems to be the most direct response but then 5.a3 and the doubled pawns can be traded at leas...
