Aron Nimzowitsch is considered to be one of the most important chess players and writers in history of the game. Not only he was one of the strongest players from 1927 to 1931 (3rd strongest behind Alekhine and Capablanca), but also he influenced many great players with his work on positional chess. Among the ones who followed his system were Savielly Tartakower, Milan Vidmar, Richard Réti, Akiba Rubinstein, Bent Larsen and Tigran Petrosian.

Nimzowitsch came up with many important chess concepts. The most important ones are:
