Please! Help!!

So does everybody .. it is considered one of the best defences against d4. There is no refutation and not even a sure way to get advtange.

It is not for no reason that many people play Nf3 to enter the queen indian

Nf3 is genneraly considered better for simpler play

Try the Samisch. I play the Nimzo as black and find that I have the most trouble playing against that.

Well, I don't really know much about it, but you can use the game explorer or chessbase if you have it to look at some games in that line

zerogravity77

It can be played against either one.

the samisch works alot better on the King's Indian

go for the Rubinstein Variation

As one who's played the NID at every opportunity in OTB tournaments, rapid, blitz, and correspondence for more than 30 years, I find it most challenging to play against a patient and methodical White playing the Rubinstein Variation.

I still believe Black is fine, and still play the Nimzo when I know the opponent plays the Rubinstein, but it is the approach I've found toughest, and in recent years I settled on it as White for that reason.

Why did you do a 16 move puzzle instead of a game diagram?

Rubinstein Variation was named after the great Arthur Rubinstein.

No, it was Akiba Rubinstein.

I dont understand why Black goes d5-c5 in Rubinstein variation.. It helps white undouble his pawns and allows him to open the position where the two bishops will be a advantage.. I think black is better with something like this

With a colle-zukertort type position with colours reversed

zerogravity77

thanks. I think i will go with the rubenstein. But why can't black just take on d5 with the knight. tacticasacting 123
