|Mar-04-02|| ||bishop: It was not the best policy for white to let his pawns be doubled on the kingside as an attack on the open g-file was not to be. |

|Jan-18-06|| ||Moondoll: Nimzo is hilarious!
"That pompous White c-pawn, has passed away, unwept, unhonoured, and unsung."
If you read more of his annotations, he is full of witty quips such as these. Backed by his unquestionable natural talent, I find his notes give a unique look at the battle that is Chess.
|Jan-18-06|| ||euripides: This game feels as arrestingly modern as Nimzo's famous win against Salwe at the same tournament. It's really not a Caro-Kann but an Old Indian played very dynamically, rather like Bronstein's games in the King's Indian.|

|Feb-04-06|| ||Mostolesdude: you mean trainer?|
|Feb-24-06|| ||who: The notes to 22 should say sounder would be 22.Be3 Qa5 23.Qg1|
|Feb-24-06|| ||buRnINGbeNd: <who> Qg1 is not a valid move there.|
|Feb-24-06|| ||who: I meant 22.Be3 Qa5 23.Bg1|
|Feb-08-08|| ||littlefermat: Nimzowitsch has the weirdest annotations...|
|Feb-11-09|| ||Chachaman: That was a great game by Nimzowitsch. He took advantage of Alapin's errors, namely advancing his pawn center too far, and made Alapin pay the price.|
|Feb-12-09|| ||Oregon104: <I meant 22.Be3 Qa5 23.Bg1>|
I agree. I assume that they translated this from descriptive notation, it said "23. B-N1", and the translator was careless...
|Apr-19-09|| ||xombie: On seeing games like these, one can see how future players like Tigran Petrosian may have been affected. I find Nimzo's games much more transparent than Petrosian's, but we can see the commonalities.|
Nimzo's understanding must have been superlative. I could never tell from two little moves that they are the key to the combination, not of dessimating the king or anything, but just ensuring that he has the center.
|May-09-09|| ||karnak64: The annotation to move 19 is worth the price of admission ...|
|Mar-21-12|| ||OhioChessFan: I hope my tombstone doesn't say the same thing as the c pawn's eulogy.|
