4...a5 5.a3! (As Kaufman recommended) is quite annoying for Black. I have a corr game with Black in this one and i am barely holding. In a practical game i'd have lost with hands down...

4...c5 is a nice choice, although 5.Bxb4 followed by 6.e3! with the idea Be2 and Ne1-Nd3 and i think that White has a small but definite edge. Theoretically other lines for Black are more critical, but if White with such a simple way can claim a small edge i wouldn't be happy with Black at all.

4...Bxd2 is also slightly better for White. So, in my eyes, if 4...Qe7 is not acceptable, then Black cannot equalise in the Bogo.


My opinion, too!  Wink

I've just become interested in 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ 4.Bd2 a5!?, after trying (and failing) to make 4...Qe7 look comfortable to me.  I've never given 4...a5 a serious look before (it was always either 4...Qe7 or 4...c5 for me), and I think there are some interesting points.  For instance, 5.g3 0-0 6.Bg2 d5 7.0-0 dxc4 transposes to that Kramnik - Topolav Catalan line that John Cox wrote about, and if 7.Qc2 c5!? might be playable.   I'm investigating 7...c5!? at the moment.

Hhhmm...maybe I'll start playing the Nimzo and Bogo again, I'm tired of the stuff I've been playing lately.

Thanks for pointing that out! I know the "256 pages" is just a placeholder, but I am not sure I'll manage below that....

A slight variation: A dark square repertoire - the Nimzo Bogo combo.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

As for the title, something silly like 'the dark side of the Nimzo' might sell books. But maybe it's too close to 'The Dark Knight' by Schuyler.

I'm looking forward to the book. The author has a quite good Youtube channel I watch occasionally. The subject (and choice of lines) seems close to what Makarov at Chess Stars had in mind some time ago. http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1288282759 That project never finished.
  

Don't check me with no lightweight stuff.

Yes, "Bogo-Catalan" will be covered. It's not much of a difference to a "regular Bogo" though.

All Nimzo lines and most Bogo lines will be based on a dark squared setup, so moves like ...d6,...e5,...c5 are featured heavily. In the whole Nimzo part the move ...d5 is never played at all. I chose these lines as they have not received any or very litlle coverage in the past.

The Hübner line is part of the book, I couldn't make 4.e3 Nc6 work. 5.Ne2 is just too annoying to face, and even 5.Nf3 is not easy to play against.


Will you cover the Bogo-Catalan?

That's great news in my opinion; these setups have received very little coverage recently, as you say!

4 e3 Nc6 can go all sorts of ways - some of the lines including an early Nf3 are in Palliser's tango book by transposition, although you can play with d5 there too.

iirc 5 Nge2 is meant to be critical (unless its Bd3 first) when black is iirc meant to go for an early d5/e5 combination to try and get play. Not entirely obvious if that really gets enough so relatively rare overall.

Might be possible to finess the move order with 4..o-o/d5 or some such.
