As black after 1)d4 Nf6 2)c4 e6 if white plays 3)Nc3 I can play Bb4 and a nimzo-indian but if white plays 3)Nf3 what can I play? Can I transpose to the nimzo-indian? And which are all the other possible defence I can play?
Thanks for the answers and sorry for my bad English:-)
you can play 3... Bb4 Bogo-indian defense and 3... b6 Queen´s indian defense for example
Are there others possibilities?
3..c5 heading for a Benoni defense or Blumenfeld counter gambit.
Or simply 3...d5. Heading for a standard Queen's gambit declined.
ok really thanks!
Ultimately opening choice is largely a matter of taste, but 3 ...d5 is probably the simplest way, going into a line of the QGD where White has foregone several good options. It's not as difficult to play for Black as some lines.
Many Benoni players nowadays only play it after 3 Nf3 c5, when they have avoided the Taimanov and anything with an early f4.
But most players who play the Nimzo also play the QID with 3 ...b6. There are many ways to transpose back and forth if White plays an early Nc3, and the structures can be similar, so the openings are of a family. The Bogo 3 ...Bb4+ is also related, but more rarely played as a main defense.
OK thanks:) I'll give a try to the bogo:)
you can play diferent read it and from keres defense you can traspose to nimzo-indian or bogo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keres_Defence
