    EBOOK - Play the Queen's Gambit
    Catalog Code: E-B0076EM

From the very beginning White develops actively, takes the initiative and strives to dominate the center.

    The Nimzo-Indian Defence continues to be one 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.
