Rubinstein Complex of the Nimzo-Indian Defense (Chess) / IM Leon Pliester

£12.99

Product description

Publication date: 1995. Condition: Very good. The cover is in very good condition - though with a little edge wear and a crease along the spine. Internally the book is in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked. Content: "The Nimzo-Indian Defencse has been the most enduring and popular contribution to the theory of chess openings by iconoclast and trailblazer Aaron Nimzowitsch. The moves 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 comprise a jumping-off point for the Nimzo-Indian Defense. Akibs Rubinstein, a classicist only four years older than Nimzowitsch, formulated the response 4.e3, which starts the Rubinstein Complex. He often intended to continue Ng1-e2, planning to recapture on c3 with the knight. However, the Rubinstein Complex - and this book - also include those variations where White plays Ng1-f3....The book gives the up-to-date "best moves" in the manifold lines of the Rubinstein Complex, adding some of the more interesting sidelines, and also the author's suggestions, so far untried in tournament play. The author stresses the strategic concepts of the Rubinstein Complex. The reader will know how to play it - not just the moves, but the ideas."
