    Ben, Thanks for the video. I am finding more and more often that I like the lines that you suggest. I have struggled against the Nimzo in the past and tried: 4.e3 4.a3 4.f3 and not found anything I felt comfortable with and so started going the 3. Nf3 route only to find I hate the Bogo about as much as the nimzo!

     You inspired me take a look at the Qc2 lines (against which I had been unfairly predjuiced against for no reason I can do think of) but I do have a question: 

    After 4...0-0 you said you used to play 5. Bg5 but were "cured of that", making it sound like something is wrong with that line.  When I started to look at those lines I like them. Is there some positional drawback some where?

    Again, thanks for the video series! I really apprciate it these and you should do one on my personal Nemesis, the Dutch.

    you attacking style is so straight forward and clear; but i'm glad you explained your opponents' tricks.  DeFirmian is a formidable opponent and you handled that game nicely!

    Lol I see now Ben. You both don't have any games together. Carlson know who to play and who to avoid. Lol

    Excellent video, thanks!

    I always thought that in the Qc2 variation, which I play myself, white is behind in development. It's funny that this is isn't really reflected in your games. I can see that you refrain from playing a3 in both games, which could be a partial explanation (it saves you at least a tempo).
