never got d5 white always plays e3 or nf3 and wins against me
Thank you very much for this video, one thing I did not understand was the purpose of h3 to play Kng3 in the variation where white plays Bd3 and an early e4 occurs from black part. Any comment would be appreciated.
Why is d5 the only option for white in that line after c5? Is e3 bad?
Maybe because of cx d4 exd4 Qa5?
Very good video, but in the first line instead of 9.f3 or 9.Bd3 there is another major move there - 9.Qc2, the speciality of Hungarian GM Berkes among others. It avoids both the very blocked centre and also the mentioned problems associated with 9.Bd3 e4! Black is OK in this line too but needs to play very precisely and can run into problems if not prepared. Nevertheless, the video was very useful, thanks.
Definately worth watching twice!
Thanks for showing a game for those like myself who enjoy playing Black
This video was the business! I'm using this knowledge and adding it to what else I have for my weekend tournament on Saturday and Sunday! Definately gonna be brushing up on the Nimzo ;)
very good vidio, it really interest me most...
this brings complications to a whole new level ... if this video proves one thing, it would be that chess is definitely NOT "played out".
very good Video
Great video! thanks.
Thank you, this was really good stuff.
very good your vidios are very instuctive always a pleasure.
Nice video. Very useful defence.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
In part 3 of Roman's "Complete Nimzo" series, he brings us a deep look into a relatively unexplored sideline. He gives his special recipe as usual, and explains why computers have a hard time evaluating such closed positions that favor the Knights. Pay close attention to interesting ideas like ...Bf5 by black, designed to induce the e4 pawn advance and close the position.

GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
GM Dzindzichashvili was once one of the top players in the world. Born in Georgia, his chess first developed in the USSR. While still an International Master, he defeated opponents like Botvinnik and Bronstein before emigrating, first to Israel where he became a Grandmaster, and then to the United States. His accomplishments in the U.S. include two U.S. Championship first places, and one World Open. He has not played actively in tournaments recently, but has become even more famous perhaps in the U.S. for quality instructional materials, in particular chess videos! Roman Dzindzichashvili now teaches chess classes and seminars for Chess.com University. Feel free to contact him for more information!
