Nimzo Winawer Blackmar-Diemer

Ray Haines plays a chess opening that resembles a Nimzo-Indian Defence 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 or a French Defence Winawer 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 as Black. The game position may also be reached when heading toward a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit via 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 dxe4 4.f3, but here Black does not play ...d5. Two good ideas work for White. Attack Nf6 with 4.e5! and then g7 with 5.Qg4! Or defend e4 with 4.Bd3. White hoped for a blunder and was rewarded with Black's seventh move.
