How I WIN With 1.b3 & 1…b6 Chess Openings [SECRETS Revealed]

A lot of you (the RCA students) have asked me to share some of my own games in which I’ve played the chess openings that I share with you in my lessons. So today I’m sharing with you some of my games from my favourite chess opening, 1.b3, known as the Larsen’s Opening or the Nimzo–Larsen Attack.

It is a very universal and solid chess opening as the same can be played as Black, 1…b6, which is known as the Owen’s Defense when played against White’s first move 1.e4. You can learn how to play 1…b6 against both 1.e4 and 1.d4 in this lesson – LINK.

You will learn the key attacking plans in this opening, common ideas, and some middlegame plans.

Below, you can find the games shown in the video:
