    I love the e5 version. I play better when i have black and it starts 1.e4 nc6 2.d4 e5 3.d5 Nce7. I'm not overly familiar with dxe5 because I don't see it. 1300-1850, if they play 2.d4, they're advancing. The problem is having a system for 2.Nf3. I settled on the pirc and feel comfortable throwing out the colorado lean as well. Eventually, I'm wondering if i'm going to have to change, either to transposing to ruy lopez after 2.Nf3 or maybe something else entirely. I'm just not sure how wise it is to play something I might have to give up if I improve.

    My admiration for Nimzowitsch increases when I see many of his inventions challenging Dr. Tarrasch. As you say it is an excellent surprise weapon. The fact that this opening is not used by top GMs like Kasparov and Anand gives rise to a suspicion that there must something dubious which we have to unravel before we use it over the board. Thank you for the nice video and analysis.

    Brilliant video, I occassionaly use this defence myself and I'm in a thematic tournament where this is the opening. After watching this video I definately plan on playing a few more games with this weapon! Smile

    Thanks for the video!  I have taken up the Nimzovich Defense a few months ago.  This helps.  I have a master level friend who employed it with great success for years in correspondence play where one looks to get off the beaten trail.  I saw a comment that 2.Nf3 is the most popular response which is covered in FM Galofre's video.  I must say in practice time and again, everyone chooses e4 and d4 set ups---not 2.Nf3.  Last week someone played 1.e4 Nc6 2.Nc3 and lost against me.

    I normally play 2. Nf3, which wasn't covered at all, but according to the chess explorer, is the most common master move.
