Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Revolution Revisited - Part 16

Opening: E20: Nimzo-Indian defense

Player(s): Mamedyarov, Hou

The Nimzo remains a top-shelf opening choice for the new generation of players thanks to its richness of ideas. All sorts of different pawn structures may arise from, and one line that Kasparov left unmentioned (mostly due to space constraints, I believe) is 4.f3, which could take the game into a Benoni territory. Of course, it takes two to tango, and Black has other choices but 4...c5, but, still I find the resulting positions the most intriguing. The initial efforts to uphold White's colors were taken by Shirov, but lately, it is also Mamedyarov who continues to push through.In the featured game, Shakh was able to make the most out of his opportunities. Notice has been served to Black to get back to work
