    Hey All,
    Is anyone on RHP a Strong Nimzo-Indian Defense player? Who are you? And is the Nimzo-Indian Defense played often among GMs, IMs, or FMs?

    I'm not strong so it's irrelevant whether I play it. I don't see much 1.d4 so I don't play it often. But it is played frequently at the top levels.

    In Wijk an Zee this year it was played by Radjabov against Caruana, Caruana against Aronian, and So against Carlsen, all to draws.

    what about this attack:

    1.d4 Nf6
    2.g4!

    That destroy any black defense..... maybe is called Bronstein Gambit but has other names as well

    If white allows it - the Nimzo has been one of the favored defenses vs d4 for 60 years.

    I think that was from the first page of the book:

    Play 1.d4 Nf6 2.g4!
