With this DVD on the Nimzo-Indian Defense (including the Catalan and the Queen‘s Indian), Alexei Shirov continues the successful and highly praised series about his best games.
As in the preceding DVDs, the Latvian super grandmaster succeeds in spoiling his public with analysis of high quality and with exciting insights into his games.
He does so in his own reserved, pleasant and modest style.
The DVD concentrates on the Classical Nimzo-Indian Defense with 4.Qc2.
But when playing against the very solid Nimzo-Indian Defense, which the author faced most often as White, it is enormously important to be able to vary your opening lines.
So the author himself often switches to 3.Nf3; this then leads to games with 3.b6 (Queen‘s Indian) or 3.d5 4.g3 (Catalan).
Amongst the opponents in the games he presents are, for example, Topalov and Leko.
