1.d4 Nf6 Indians

  • International 
  • Formed: Feb 21, 2010
  • In the 1920's, 1.d4 Nf6 was considered an irregular opening. Then Tartakower read an old German journal in which there was a game played in 1875 by two Brahmans which began 1.d4 Nf6. Thereafter he jokingly referred to this as the "Indian Defense". This is a group for players who are interested in learning and playing the White and Black sides of the hypermodern Indian defenses to 1.d4. All our Team Matches, Tournaments, and Vote Chess games are based on 1.d4 Nf6. We currently have a 300 membership maximum. Please apply if you: play 1.d4 Nf6 as White or Black, are interested in joining Team Matches, Tournaments or Vote Chess, wish to contribute in some way to our group, and already belong to less than 50 groups.
