In this series, GM Eugene Perelshteyn explores one of his favorite openings, the Bogo-Indian.
The Bogo-Indian begins with the moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+. (See the diagram)
Black delays placing his pawns in the center in favor of developing the kingside rapidly. Although seen at all levels of chess, it’s a particularly good opening for club players because it is flexible, sound, and doesn’t require learning a lot of theory. Together with the Nimzo-Indian, this can offer a complete repertoire for Black against 1.d4.
In this exclusive iChess Club video, GM Perelshteyn takes a look at how play continues when White blocks the check with 4.Nbd2.
