An odd Nimzo

Sep 23, 2015, 7:37 PM 0

Correspondence game with Someone (1886) vs me. We went into a very weird Nimzo-Indian game. I always had the worse structure and was down a pawn, but better piece activity gave me the win. An interesting point of the game was that despite it being a correspondence game, I spent almost no time calculating variations. I kept to a simple plan of activating my pieces. This made the middlegame very straightforward and showed how powerful a simple plan can be even against someone rated ~1900.
