Learn From Your Fellow Amateurs 6 – NM Dana Mackenzie, from the ChessLecture series.

This game features the Nimzo-Indian, Leningrad variation middlegame!

The Nimzo-Indian late middlegame seems very good for Black, and Dana proves this beyond reasonable doubt. Black will eventually pressure the weak ‘c’ file with a double or triple battery. Although Black may have to fend off some early initiative, with no weaknesses it’s clear the initiative is pointless in many Nimzo-Indians Pre-endgames. Focusing a piece on an advanced weak square (c4) in White’s camp will bring about a clear asset that leads to a clear advantage for Black.
