This DVD is packed full of new, exciting and novel ideas; based on a repertoire starting with the moves 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 with g3! to follow. Currently this is the most testing way to challenge players who prefer the Nimzo. White develops sensibly - but has aggressive intentions in mind! On this DVD, I will tell you everything you need to know to play this way as White, but the DVD will also be of interest to players who are unsure what to do against 3 Nf3 - giving you a repertoire with Black as well. A number of secret and deadly novelties are included on this DVD. I believe that some of these ideas have the power to gain the full point - even at top GM level. The main idea of this DVD is to present the opening in a fun yet educational way, so that by the time you have finished watching, you will no longer fear playing against the Nimzo-Indian defence, but rather relish the prospect!
