Nimzo-Indian: Classical, Vitolins-Adorjan Gambit – Standard chess #28

I played a standard chess game as white with time controls set at 15 minutes with a 2 second increment. The opening played was the Nimzo-Indian: Classical, Vitolins-Adorjan Gambit. It’s white’s bishop-pair versus black’s speedy development out of a Nimzo-Indian, Classical variation. Black offers a gambit by move 6 with the aim to accentuate development. By move 16 however, the advantage of two-bishops and a development lead dissipate. Instead play produces a symmetrical structure where specific attention is geared towards the queenside and some key squares on the c-file.
