Indian Defence[edit]

3. Nf3[edit]

White develops a piece and continues his fight for the central dark squares. This Knight developments while solid prevents White option of playing f3 or f4 and thus gives up options of the aggressive four pawns attack requiring f4 and the Samisch which requires f3.
