Grandmaster John Emms recommends a repertoire for Black in the Nimzo-Indian (1.d4,Nf6; 2.c4,e6; 3.Nc3,Bb4;), illustrated using 41 complete games, with questions and exercises throughout to test your understanding of strategy and tactics in this popular defence.
The Move by Move approach seeks to provide a though provoking platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, Move by Move greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved, and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn.
The Nimzo-Indian is a popular defence to 1.d4 at all levels of play and one of Black's best options. It has been a favourite of the author for over 30 years. Here he shares his experience and knowledge, examines the opening from both sides of the board and offers answers to the all key questions.
John Emms is a Grandmaster and has captained the English Team at two Chess Olympiads. He is an experienced coach who has worked with many top players, including World Championship finalist Michael Adams. He's also a highly respected chess writer, with many outstanding works to his name.
