Grandmaster Varuzhan Akobian teaches the kids a good defense against 1. d4, the Nimzo-Indian. Three branches are explored: the Classical Variation, the Rubinstein System, and the Kmoch Variation.
E36 Nimzo-Indian, classical, Noa variation, 5.a3
Gregory Kaidanov vs Varuzhan Akobian, US Championship (2012): E55 Nimzo-Indian, 4.e3, Gligoric system, Bronstein variation
E25 Nimzo-Indian, Saemisch variation
I'm still a little unsure. Did GM Akobian go on to win his game?
I am the best chess player
Arjun is nothing to me
What is the continuation if Queen doesn't take on c4?and plays e3?
"That's the classical!"
Very important thank you

@11:45 To push and get rid of your weakness, are you going to let him do that?
He probably meant to push and attack your weakness, are you going to let him do that?

isnt qA4 a free bishop?
Akobian clearly doesn't know his chess history, everyone knows the Nimzo-Indian is named after Mr. Indian
