TWIC 1158: More

Some things for 1.d4 players.

Games Selection

Maiorov-Kovalenko

Nimzo-Indian(E32) 4.Qc2 d6!?

The 4..d6 sideline is an interesting way to avoid the massive theory of the main lines.

After 18-Kh1(Diagram)

White took some liberties with the odd Qc1  retreat and then 18.Kh1 just invited a massive attack. The remainder of the game was a comedy  errors though.

Open Catalan 8.a4(E05)

After 15..Ra8(Diagram)

White has the bishops and a nice pawn centre. White is the plan now?

Martinez-Granda Zuniga

Queen’s Indian 4.g3 Ba6(E15)

After 21..Qc6(Diagram)

White lasted until deep into the ending when the losing blunder was made but certainly had chances in the early going.
