Nimzo Indian Defense - Strongest reply to d4

Jun 25, 2016, 8:04 AM |

Usually, white plays d4 with the aim of controlling the centre with following moves like e4, c4, Nc3. 

Black usually plays moves such as e4, or Nf6 to prevent the e4 move, and black then proceeds with the move c4. 

The Nimzo Indian defense is then a strong reply, wherein the light squared bishop is used to pin the Knight at c3, and prevent the e4 move.
