Aron Nimzowitsch

My System ~ "My System (GermanMein System) is a book on chess theory written by Aron Nimzowitsch. Originally over a series of five brochures from 1925 to 1927, the book—one of the early works on hypermodernism—introduced many new concepts to followers of the modern school of thought. It is generally considered to be one of the important books in the history of chess.[1]" Wikipedia ( )

I'm going to read "My System 21st Century Edition". In a series of posts I'm going to discuss what I understand or what I do not understand. Maybe you would like to join me. Get a copy of the book. We can take this learning journey together. Maybe we'll come out the other side much stronger players. I will be going slow and methodically. I want to learn it deeply.

The book -

Lets Get Started:

The first position to get us started is found on page 3. After the points about the "frontier line" and "The Center". Feel free to share your understanding of these points or ask a question if you don't understand. Remember we're in this together. Take rudeness elsewhere.


Because the second example in the book is for the same idea. "2. A pawn move must not in itself be regarded as a developing move ..." I'm going to add it here instead of waiting for the next post. We are still on page 3 of the book.
So if you have the book and read to page 3. Covering the first 2 bulleted items. We can discuss those before I make another post.
