A blog about chess in North Devon, particularly at Barnstaple Chess Club.
This position is a curious one: it doesn't look as if white has any advantage, but something happens over the next few moves to alter this. Perhaps the problem is that it's difficult for black to find a constructive plan; his pieces don't seem as if they have obviously better squares to go to.Is it perhaps more that Black can't really open the position (to get at the uncastled king) without benefitting the White bishops more than any of his own pieces? This isn't entirely unusual in Nimzo-Indians.
That may well be the case. You probably know the Nimzo-Indian better than I do.
