The <strong>Bogo-Indian Defense</strong> is a chess opening characterized by the moves:<strong> 1</strong>.<strong>d4</strong>,<strong>Nf6 2</strong>.<strong>c4 e6 </strong>3.<strong>Nf3 Bb4.</strong>

The Bogo-Indian is a <strong>solid and </strong>positionally sound opening. It can be used both against weaker opponents (whose positional understanding is lacking) and against strong rivals (because it gives you a very solid position).
