Christian Bauer

The Nimzowitsch Defence, 1.e4 Nc6, is a lesser-known and by-far-less-popular legacy, of the great strategist Aron Nimzowitsch, than his Nimzo-Indian Defence. Indeed, if the latter has acquired a reputation of being one of the soundest replies to 1.d4, almost the opposite could be said about 1.. Nc6 as an answer to 1.e4.

The main reason for that lies probably in the fact that Black blocks his c-pawn as soon as move one, something a dogmatic player will regard as highly suspicious. There are, however, many more factors involved in the opening than the mobility of the respective c-pawns, and this course will explore rather rare, yet fully playable, lines for Black.

It's main body will consist of a Pirc Defence after 1.e4 Nc6 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 Nf6 4.Nc3 g6 where Black has avoided the sharpest variations, at the small cost of being a bit less flexible, since his knight already stands at c6. I will also recommend you ways to handle secondary options for White as well as his second-most popular choice, the move 2.d4.
