Nice ..i get a sense of uncomfortable to play these positions ...now yea guess wont hve it ...most probably white looses because they simply try to advance creating back ward pawn weakness ...thinks better to play on king side for white .
More great games and another great lecture! Thanks!
Who was Nimzovitch playing in the first game?
This opening is not the Bogo-Indian, isn't the Bogo-Indian Defense 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+? The openings here are known as "The Old Indian Defense" (no fianchetto by Black, kind of like a Philidors Defense vs 1.d4)
Why is it saying this video is deleted?
great explanation of the game, keep them coming, very enjoyable to see
They did what they did and this was great! I just tried to explain a little part of their enormous contribution to the chess world.
Nice games, who was Nimzo playing against in those games?
great video. thanx..
You are all very welcome. Happy Easter to the Orthodox Christians!
that gm player makes alot of videos
Great video. thanks
Many concepts beautifully explained. Many thanks.
Great video. I really struggle in these positions, I learned a lot about black's counterplay against the c & e pawns. I found the idea of Ne5 and giving white f4 for free to weaken e4 to be particularly insightful. Thanks!
This has got to be one of the best videos for black! I can't play black very well, but this may help some. Thank you so much!
very useful for me!
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Yet another thing the good doctor Tarrasch and the great Aron Nimzowitsch disagreed about was central control! In-particular, Nimzo's theory was that occupying the center with your pieces, on key squares, can be just as effective as gaining a space advantage with your pawns. GM Dejan Bojkov explains, but regardless of where they stood on this debate, we can all thank these two "chess fore-fathers" for pioneering these discussions.
