The most aggressive response to the Nimzo An ideal weapon for club-players The 4 f3 Nimzo variation is making a strong comeback, as it results in sharp, forcing play of a type that is rare in the early stages of most Nimzo-Indians. The Nimzo-Indian is an extremely popular and reliable defense, upon which most world champions have relied at some point in their careers. Black controls the vital e4-square with his pieces, and retains total flexibility with his central pawns. By playing 4 f3, White challenges Black's idea head-on. Russian GM Yakovich, intimately familiar with the opening, provides the necessary details for White to steam-roller his opponent. Essential reading for players of the black pieces too! This book is ideal for club players wishing to spring 4 f3 on their unsuspecting opponents.
Author Yuri Yakovich is an experienced grandmaster from the Russian city of Samara. His numerous tournament victories include three consecutive triumphs at Santo Antonio during 1999-2001. This is his second chess book for Gambit.
