The Nimzo-Indian Defence comtinues to be ome of Black's most reliable ways of meeting the queen's pawn opening. It's popular at all levels of chess and a constant source of anxiety for White players. How can White find a worthwhile line against this incredibly firm defence? How can White set his Nimzo opponent difficult tasks from the outset? Perhaps it's time to look somewhere different from the well-trodden main lines.

In this book Grandmaster and renowed openings expert Chris Ward investigates unusual white tries, including three uncompromising and underrated ways of battling against the Nimzo: the Sämisch, the Leningrad and the 4 f3 variation. Each line is ideal for putting your opponent under immediate pressure from the start of the game.
By studying the various strategies and tactics in these variations, White players can confidently arm themselves with three new menacing lines against the Nimzo, while Black players must again search carefully for antidotes!
