In his first camp for Modern Chess, GM Nigel Davies will examine the rare but intriguing Nimzowitsch Defence against 1.e4 (1...Nc6). This defense can serve as a complete, stand-alone option against 1.e4 or as a means of transposing into 1.e4 e5 lines while limiting White's options other than 2.Nf3. Additionally, the lines explored will interest players of the French, Alekhine's, and Scandinavian Defences, which can be reached by transposition.

Key Variations Covered:

1.e4 Nc6 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.e5 Nd5 4.d4 d6

  • Also reached via 1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 d6 4.Nf3 Nc6

1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 e6

  • Also reached via 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nc6

1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 Qxd5

  • Also reached via 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.d4 Nc6

1.e4 Nc6 2.d4 d5 3.e5

The camp consists of four lectures. In each session, GM Davies will provide complete responses for Black. Additionally, participants will gain fresh and less explored options whenever possible. The suggested repertoire offers a comprehensive approach against 1.e4 and can enhance the arsenal of players who favor the French, Alekhine, and Scandinavian Defences.

Benefits of the Camp:

✅ A complete repertoire for Black after 1.e4 Nc6

✅ Knowledge of the plans and tactical ideas in all examined lines

✅ A solid and practical repertoire for Black

✅ Insights into how grandmasters build their repertoire

✅ Improved general understanding of chess
