Positional Nimzo-Indian Repertoire - Part 1

In this project, he is launching a very ambitious series of databases devoted to the “queen of openings” - the Nimzo-Indian. Arguably, the Nimzo, alongside with the Ruy Lopez, are the two openings every single top-player and almost every single GM have played at some point of their careers. The Nimzo is so vastly popular due to its versatility and flexibility – you can get literally any type of position, such as IQP, hanging pawns, positions with the bishop pair, pawn chains, lead in development, etc. Both sides have a massive amount of choice almost on every move.

Positional Repertoire against the Caro-Kann - Video Version

The Caro-Kann Defence historically is one of the most solid defensive repertoires. While Black temporarily allows White to grab the centre, he delivers an immediate counterstrike and, contrary to French Defence, doesn't close any of his bishops. Practice proves that it is a tough nut to crack and this is why it's so popular. After writing his trilogy for the Anti-Sicilian approach, GM Neiksans decided to write something similar about the ever-tough Caro-Kann as well. He suggests an easy-to-learn setup which according to several Caro-Kann experts is the most annoying system for a Caro-Kann player to face!
