I was wondering the same thing and asked Richard himself a week or so ago, but he said that he hadn't kept up with the theory.
There are some more recent games in the PGN Archive, but mostly on the Zurich Variation, Richard himself last did a Tango update for us in 2005.
Maybe someone should ask John Emms to look at it again?

Tango and Nimzo Indian question

Last team match a FM in the opposing team recogniced my name from Dragon section of Chesspub and after that we both quickly finished our games (where I forced a draw in the Dragon when I didnt not se the winning move and he won quickly over one of my teammates) we chatted a bit. He showed me that it was possible to use the Tango as a companion to Nimzo Indian after 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 Nc6



I do have Pallisers Tango book that I bought since I was interested in the Zurich variation of Qc2 Nimzo Indian.

The position after 3 Nf3 Nc6 can be reached via a Tango moveorder.

He quickly showed my that after 4 a3 black could swith plan to a good version of the Kingsindian with the move plan d6 g6 Bg7 0-0 Re8 e5 Nd4.

If 4 Nc3 simply Bb4 and we have a Nimzo position that is already a part om my repertour since I meet Nf3 Nimzo with Nc6 to get opponnets out of book and in my practical experince they rarely know that Qc2 is the possilbe most critical responce to Nc6.

If 4 g3 d5 leeds to a catalan positon where black is fine..

Does anyone know how theory of the position after 3 Nf3 Nc6 has developed since the Tango book?
