Position after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e3

In my senescence I have come to hold various firm and unshakable convictions - one being that all serious d4 players should have the Rubinstein Nimzo-Indian somewhere in their repertoire.The opening is fundamentally sound for Black, but the positions are so strategically rich that they promise great rewards for diligent worker blessed with some understanding. - Nigel Short
