The Nimzo-Indian Rubinstein
The Nimzo-Indian Defence continues to be one of Black¿s most popular and respected defences to queen¿s pawn openings, and finding an antidote for White has proved to be a difficult task for even the strongest players in the world. One of the most straight-forward replies is the Rubenstein Variation (4 e3), in which White ignores Black¿s ¿threats¿ and instead simply gets on with the process of developing his remaining pieces. This plan has found favor with many top players; indeed, Brain Games World Champion Vladimir Kramnik used it to defeat Garry Kasparov in just 25 moves in their 2000 match in London.
In this book, renowned openings theoretician Angus Dunnington explains the ideas and strategies for both white and black players. All the major variations are covered and readers are brought up-to-date with the constantly increasing opening theory.
