If you're searching for a aggressive, universal, and unknown system with White pieces then Nimzowitsch-Larsen Attack (1.b3) is the right choise with you. Continue reading this article to learn the main ideas and how to use it successfully into your future games.
After the first move 1. b3 we have the Larsen's Opening. This is also called the Nimzo–Larsen Attack or Queen's Fianchetto Opening. It is named after the Danish grandmaster Bent Larsen. Larsen was inspired by Aron Nimzowitsch who often played 1.Nf3 followed by 2.b3. Thus this opening also called Nimzowitsch–Larsen Attack.
The main idea of this opening is to develop the dark-square Bishop on b2. From the Fianchetto position it will execute presure on the central dark squares. Often, White's strategy is f4 and Nf3 in order to highlight his dominant on d4 and e5. In general this is a sound opening because Black's main idea is to play a similar system like Queen's Indian Defense with the reverse colors; which can arise after the moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6.
