French Nimzo 4Qg4
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

It's unconventional, but worth a try as a surprise weapon against the occasional French defender. Black's central pawn mass is not always decisive. The Black knight can be a pain in the backside, but so can the White bishops. Both queens can be threatening.
