I think the answer depends on what they play vs 1 c4. For example it they play symmetrical english and sicilian defence they can play 1 .. c5.

3...c5?

The Fianchetto isn't the scariest line of the Benoni and the lines after 4. Nf3 are interesting.

The black side of the Catalan is in many Nimzo-player repertoires. It is almost a given that if you're going to play the Nimzo-Indian then you will need 2 other defenses.

It's a lot of work, but that seems to be the life of a Nimzo player. Poor devils.


Serves them right for not playing the Modern Benoni against 3 Nc3  Grin

I sometimes play the somewhat unusual move order 1 Nf3 Nf6 2 c4 Nc6!?, which might transpose to Tango waters or to a Nimzo Zurich after 3 d4. However people who play 1 Nf3 are sometimes not ready to do that. Similarly, the 1 Nf3 guys are often not keen on 1 c4 e5 structures, so 1 Nf3 Nf6 2 c4 Nc6 3 g3 e5! is not to everybody's liking either.
It's a highly transpositional move order, but interesting to try once in a while if your black repertoire allows for it.

As a nimzo player, and having Accelerated Dragon also studied (more or less), I play 1.Nf3 c5 and 1.c4 c5, entering in the symmetrical Engish.

And vs 1.d4 e6 2.c4 Nf6 3.g3.... I enter in the Catalan 3...d5, main lines with 4.Bb4, very similar to some nimzo/bogos. Of course 3....Bb4 is also possible.

Salut,

I don't play any Indian defense, but I was just curious about players who play the Nimzo + Bogo Indian complex...

Against 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 they play the Nimzo-Indian.

Against 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 they play the Bogo-Indian.

Against 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g3 they play the Bogo-Indian.

But what do they do against 1. Nf3 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g3 ?

It can also be reached from 1. c4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 3. g3

If they play 3...b6 it's a Queen's Indian which is not in their repertoire.

If they play 3...d5 it's a Catalan which is not in their repertoire.

So do they really have to settle for something completely different than their usual system with Nf6+e6+Bb4?

Are they forced to play the Symmetrical English?
