The Nimzo-Larsen attack is by all means an unorthodox opening. This opening is suitable for those who want to upset their opponents with openings they probably have never seen before.

White starts with the move 1.b3 to bring his bishop directly to b2. Even though the opening is not played very often, it is far from dubious. Even players like Hikaru Nakamura have used it with great success before.
