After 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 White players often play 3.Nc3 allowing the Nimzo-shop Indian Defense.
But what happens if White plays the just as natural 3.Nf3?
On this DVD, GM Jacob Aagaard follows up on his DVD on the Nimzo by giving a recommendation based on his own repertoire with the Queen’s Indian Defense: 3…b6.
This system is a favorite of Adams, Anand, Leko, Polgar, and many others of today’s chess stars.
It is also well known for mixing active and natural play with positional soundness.
