The Rubinstein System (named after Akiba Rubinstein) is White's most common method of combating the Nimzo-Indian. Svetozar Gligorić and Lajos Portisch made great contributions to the theory and practice of this line at top level during their careers. White continues their development before committing to a definite plan of action. In reply, Black has three main moves to choose from: 4...0-0, 4...c5, and 4...b6.
After 7...dxc4 8.Bxc4, Black also has two rare alternatives on their eighth move worth mentioning: 8...Qe7 intending ...Rd8 is the Smyslov Variation, invented by former world champion Vasily Smyslov, and 8...Bd7 followed by ...Bc6 is the Bronstein Variation, the brainchild of two-time world championship finalist David Bronstein.
Black puts pressure on d4 and leaves open the option of playing ...d5, or ...d6 and ...e5. The game can still transpose to the main line mentioned above after moves such as 5.Bd3 d5 6.Nf3 0-0 7.0-0, but there are two major variations particular to 4...c5:
Favoured by Nimzowitsch, 4...b6 is a move in accordance with the spirit of the Nimzo-Indian: Black fianchettoes their light-squared bishop to increase their control over e4. White usually continues 5.Ne2, avoiding the doubled pawns, or 5.Bd3, continuing their development (5.Nf3 usually transposes to 5.Bd3). The main variations emerging from these moves are:
The Classical or Capablanca Variation was popular in the early days of the Nimzo-Indian, and though eventually superseded by 4.e3 it was revived in the 1990s; it is now just as popular as the Rubinstein. White aims to acquire the two bishops without compromising their pawn structure. The drawback is that the queen will move at least twice within the opening moves and that White's kingside development is delayed. Thus, even though White possesses the bishop pair, it is usually advisable for Black to open the game quickly to exploit their lead in development. Black has four common replies to 4.Qc2. These include 4...0-0, 4...c5, 4...d5, and 4...Nc6 (4...d6 intending ...Nbd7 and ...e5 is a rarer fifth option).
White develops the knight to a natural square and waits to see Black's reply. 4...d5 transposes to the Ragozin Defence of the Queen's Gambit Declined and 4...b6 5.Bg5 Bb7 transposes to the Nimzo/Queen's Indian hybrid line, so 4...c5 is the most common move that stays within Nimzo-Indian territory. Now 5.e3 transposes to the Rubinstein System, but the main move is 5.g3, which leads to a position that also arises from the Fianchetto Variation. 5.g3 cxd4 6.Nxd4 0-0 7.Bg2 d5 8.cxd5 Nxd5 can be considered the main line. Black has dissolved White's centre, but the bishop on g2 exerts pressure on the black queenside, which White may augment with 9.Qb3.
For the next game (Mikhalevski-Marin, Andorra 2001, JUL01/02) we move onto the much calmer waters of the line 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 c5 4 d5 d6 5 Nc3 exd5 6 cxd5 g6 7 e4 a6. This move order continues to be popular for Black as it avoids the main line of the Modern Classical Variation (with h3 and Bd3).
In Van Wely-Van der Wiel, Leeuwarden 2001, JUL01/05, Black plays some good moves to equalise in the line 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 b6 4 g3 Bb7 5 Bg2 Be7 6 0-0 0-0 7 Re1! Na6, but somehow manages to lose a completely drawn rook ending.
Even though the move 1.f4 was mentioned by Lucena in a book from 1497, the opening was eventually named after the British master, Henry Bird, who first played it in 1855 and continued to do so for most of his career.
The Rubinstein variation refers to the first time when 4.Bf4 was employed, by Akiba Rubinstein, as white, against GM Milan Vidmar. Rubinstein actually won the game, which lead to more players adopting the move 4.Bf4.
In the Open Defense variation of the Catalan Opening, black compromises their presence in the centre by capturing the white pawn on c4, but hopes to gain sufficient compensation in terms of extra time (since white must use a few moves to regain their sacrificed pawn).
The English Opening is an opening for white that starts with the move 1.c4. In a pure English opening, white will aim to control the d5-square, with the help of a bishop on g2 and another pawn on e4, supported by a pawn on d3.
In the classical variation of the Giuoco Piano, white plays the pawn-moves c3 and d3, controlling the centre with their pawns, whilst minimizing any potential weaknesses caused by advancing the pawns further.
In the Modern Defense Standard Line, white plays Nc3 early on. This move blocks the white c-pawn and indicates that white will, for the time being, focus their attention on the centre and the king-side.
There are over 9 million possible positions after only 3 moves by either side. The vast majority of these moves will of course be nonsensical. In fact, only a small percentage of all chess openings are officially named (and even then, not all of them are actually good). The Oxford Companion to Chess recognized 1327 named openings and variations. Over time this number will grow as chess players experiment with new variations.

I progressed in chess quite quickly, reaching 2400 after three years of competitive play, but my life took a new direction at age 12, when I moved from the Bay Area to Connecticut. My family felt there were better schools on the East Coast, and that I might have access to more diverse chess opportunities there. The Marshall Chess Club was only an hour away in New York City, and I would play there two or three times a week. 153554b96e
