Nimzovitch Defense: New video series, introduction

  • #1

    Looking for a new defense to 1.e4? Well, the Nizmovtich Defense could be exactly what you're looking for. I summarize 26 years experience playing this defense to give the main ideas. I t has held up for me as a viable defense and it avoids all the popular lines White has prepared for. More videos will follow soon.

    Thanks! I woudn't do the Alekhine's Defense justice in a video series, and I don't have time to learn it to make videos about it. I'm sure you can find something by GM Lev Alburt, he played it.


    Here's the next video! Enjoy!

    2...d6 is safe and solid, so is 2...e6. There is a video here at chess.com by FM Galofare where he recommends 2....d5, I'm trying that in online games. It's pretty good, only thing he's wrong about is 2.Nf3 is not the most common reply, 2. d4 is. I mention 2...f5 but you really have to know it to play it, and I haven't gotten to videos of that yet, but I will!

    For those that want a good plan against 2. Nf3, try the FRED! Wildest line and video you may ever see....More of these coming, how soon, depends on how eager you await them. Let me just say this, White will be in fits if you play this line and are prepared!
