GM Ward ia a major expert in the Nimzo-Indian and he pinpoints Blacks zippiest options against all the White systems. Plenty of hard counter-punching and Chris Wards own secrets. Watch out for his improvements in Kasparovs preferred lines! 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4Part 1: 4.Bd2Part 2: 4.e3Part 3: 4.a3 Part 4: 4.g3Part 5: 4.Nf3Part 6: 4.Bg5 Part 7: 4.f3 Part 8: 4.Qb3/4.Qc2Another complex opening which is well-covered in a limited time is the Nimzo-Indian, presented by Chris Ward. Ward shows that by picking slightly unusual but positionally well-founded lines, Black can play the Nimzo-Indian without a great deal of preparation. He offers simple ideas against irregular moves such as 4.Bd2 and 4.g3, and classical solutions in the main lines such as 4.e3 b6, 4.Nf3 b6, and 4.Qc2 d5. The emphasis is on soundness over complications; players who want something spicier might do well to combine Wards suggestions in the difficult lines with sharper alternatives provided by theory in others. Again, I can recommend this as an excellent starting point for an opening which will last you a lifetime.
