Nimzo-Larsen Attack 1.Nf3 .. 2.b3

  • #1

    Have anybody experience in this beginnig? What kind of game it would be? What are the grossmeisters for example and their games for white?

  • #2

    The main line is 1. Nf3 Nf6 2.b3 d6 3. Bb2 e5 4. e3 Be7. White will castle queenside, black kingside. It's aggressive and there's a lot of fight over the e5 square. Both sides kinda build up a bunch of tension. It's somewhat like the English.

    For 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.b3 d6 I think 3.d4 . My friend has shown me this analysis with stockfish. He has played this beginnig a lot against engine.

    Sorry for no comments for notation, this a result what I have written by voice

    The correct term in enlglish is "grandmasters", not grossmasters.

    Larsen was a great pioneer of this opening--you can check up on some of his games at www.chessgames.com

    Sorry for my chess English, not practiced in this subject yet.

    This is not Nimzo-Larsen Attack

    One can see a memorable quote from a 2001 book at https://web.archive.org/web/20140626223637/http://www.chesscafe.com/text/hansen27.pdf

    "... let us make it clear, first of all, that White has no advantage in the Nimzo-Larsen. ... Anyone who likes to win their games in the opening should therefore look elsewhere."

    Apparently, Cyrus Lakdawala is more enthusiastic in his 2013 book, The Nimzo-Larsen Attack: Move by Move. ("After reading this book and enjoying the games in it, you cannot help but want to try out the opening in your own games." - Carsten Hansen (2014)) https://web.archive.org/web/20140627052905/http://www.chesscafe.com/text/hansen175.pdf
