On this DVD IM Jacob Aagaard follows up on his DVD on the Nimzo to by giving a recommendation based on his own repertoire with the Queen’s Indian Defence: 3…b6. This system is a favourite of Adams, Anand, Leko, Polgar and many others of today’s chess stars. It is well known for mixing active and natural play with positional soundness.
