Nimzowitsch Defense – Opening from the perspective of white pieces
The Nimzowitsch Defence is a somewhat unusual chess opening characterized by the moves:
- 1. e4 Nc6
This opening is an example of a hypermodern opening in which Black invites White to occupy the center of the board at an early stage with pawns. Black’s intent is to block or otherwise restrain White’s central pawns and, if allowed to do so by inaccurate play by White, eventually undermine the White pawn center by well-timed pawn advances of his own or by attacking the white pieces defending the center Nimzowitsch is included under code B00 in the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings.
