|Aug-13-04|| ||aw1988: chessgames.com, according to my system the game ends at Ng6 |
|Feb-13-05|| ||aw1988: My System rather. As well a period at the end. |
|Nov-16-08|| ||paladin at large: Teichmann looks good in the endgame, but he is playing Nimzo, and Nimzo has the reputation of not grasping that phase of the game in his early years. 48... Bc2 looks bad, taking the bishop completely out of play.|
|Feb-25-09|| ||sfm: Neat. White threatens 57.Ne7 and there's no good defense. Looks like the game is lost after 51.-,Ne4.|
|Apr-07-09|| ||sergeidave: Zugzwang|
|Feb-03-10|| ||Rama: Why not 51. ... Nf3+, 52. Kg5 Nxd4, 53. cxd4 Bc2. The ending looks playable even if the B must eventually sac itself to prevent a Queening, since white now has pawn weaknesses.|

|Apr-02-10|| ||OhioChessFan: 35...g6 and 36...h5 look pointless. I ran it through Fritz and he doesn't care for it, but that's not where Black lost the game.|
|Apr-02-10|| ||OhioChessFan: Whew, moving along, if I'd been a spectator, I'd have been yelling at Nimzo "Play h4 for crying out loud!" What an odd decision after moving the g and h Pawns from their starting squares.|
Fritz doesn't fault Bc2 too much, bad as it looks. 44..Ne4 was a pointless provocation. Black certainly didn't have the advantage to pursue an attack. 55...Ke7 is an obvious blunder. I am going to let Fritz chew on 55...Kg8 for a while. Not sure Black can hold it anyway.

I cannot find Edward Winter in the player directory, only William Winter.

|Apr-02-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: <BC> Danke Schoen! Now if only I could click on the player directory, and then the letter "W", and then scroll down to find him...|
|Nov-20-10|| ||bystander: This is the second illustrative game in My System from Nimzowitsch. Between move 11 and 30 Nimzowitch uses this game as an example (from the black point of view) for the attack against white's pawn on e4 (restraint e4 after surrendering the centre with 10...ed4x) and blacks' outpost Ne5|
|Nov-20-10|| ||bystander: I do not understand why white played 9) Bb3. After 9...ed4x 10) Nd4x Nc5 and if white don not want to exchange, then the bishop has to move again.
Maybe 9) Ba2 (black cannot attack the bisshop there) or 9)Rd1.|
|Nov-22-10|| ||bystander: Maybe 18)a5,Nd7 19)Na4,Be7 and 20) Rad1?|
|Nov-22-10|| ||bystander: Maybe 19)Bg5, f6 20) Be3, Ne5 21)b3? Or 19)...Nf6x, 20)Bf6x, gf6x 20)Kh1; 19)..Be7 is not good; 20)Be7x, Re7x, 21) Nf5.|
|Nov-23-10|| ||bystander: Nimzowitch comments on 20)..f6. "Look how the e-pawn is restricted more and more."|
That might be very true, but the move also restricts the movement of Bf8 and does look a little passive to me.
What about 20)..Nc4, 21)Qc1, Qc5 (to prepare d5 or f5; according to Nimzowitch must black restrict and attack white's centrepawn on e4; this move als threats also QB6 or a kingside attack) 22) Nce2, d5 23) ed5x, Rd5x 24)b3 with better play for black?
|Nov-25-10|| ||bystander: Nimzowitch on 26... fe4x "Premature. The correct idea was first to play 26) ...Rde8 27) ef5x Bf5x 28) Nf5x Qf5x 29) Bg3 Te1x 30) Te1x Te1x 31) Qe1x Qc2x."|
In this varation white is one pawn down and black has an advantage.
What about 26) ...Rde8 27) ef5x, Bf5x 28) Nf5x, Qf5x 29) Te7x Te7x 30) Bg3 d5 31) Qd2? But black still has an advantage.
