The Queen's Indian is half of Aron Nimzovitch's conception of the center (the other half being the Nimzo-Indian). White refuses to allow the pin ...Bb4 by playing 3.Nf3, and Black responds by fianchettoing the queen's-bishop - thus fighting for control of the center from a distance.
- Black avoids weaknesses
- Fluid piece play
- White can maintain a space advantage
- The Bb7 can sometimes be shut out by d4-d5
