    Did you join the Nimzo-Indian Defense touanement? I was the last entrant (even in tournaments I don't want to be in I can't resist being the last to enter for some reason ).

    Intersting the NID positions are so varied there are usually lines that suit everyone, what lines did you particularly dislike.

    P.S. The main problem I find with the NID is White usually plays 3.Nf3 so Black has to basically learn another defence usually QID or QGD

    After 3.Nf3 I have started to play 3...Bb4+ with interesting positions.

    Aah the good old BID, you know in over 15yrs of competitive chess I have never had a game in it with Black or White. Have you played it on this site?
