Saemisch Variation (E81 – E84)

Friedrich (Fritz) Sämisch (September 20, 1896, Charlottenburg – August 16, 1975, Berlin) was a German Chess Grandmaster (1950).

Sämisch is today remembered primarily for his contributions to opening theory. Two major opening lines are named after him:

  • a variation of the King's Indian: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.f3
  • a variation of the Nimzo-Indian: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.a3
