Nimzo-Indian Rubinstein Variation with 4.e3 – GM Eugene Perelshteyn (iChess Club)




nimzo indian defenseThe Nimzo Indian Defense is a chess opening for Black against 1.d4 and occurs after the moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 (see the diagram on the right).

It was developed by the famous chess master Aaron Nimzowitsch and is a popular opening choice at all levels,  a choice of players looking to win with Black against 1.d4.

It has been a reliable setup for Black for many years, and still remains one of the most trusted options against White’s first move 1.d2-d4. The Nimzo-Indian Defense not only gives a decent game for Black but also offers high chances for double-edged positions with rich resources for fighting for a victory.

The Nimzo-Indian Defense has been included in the Black repertoires of the greatest chess players ever, such as Capablanca, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Petrosian, Spassky, Karpov, Kasparov, Anand, Kramnik, Carlsen and many others.

In this exclusive iChess Club video, GM Eugene Perelshteyn continues his exploration of this opening, this time focussing on the Rubinstein Variation with 4.e3.
