  YouRang: <YouRang><A stronger plan would be to create mate threats by pushing the black king against a wall with 90.Rc3+!>

Well, that "stronger plan" I proposed would have been a stronger plan for *me* (at least one that I could understand).

Now that I've fed the game into the computer, it seems that white's plan was fine until of course 98.Kb1? which gave up the win.

Next time I might try doing the analysis *before* I post. :-\

  luzhin: 98.Kd1 is also winning. In fact, any legal move wins EXCEPT for 98.Kb1?? which allows the stalemate trick. The teenage Nimzovitch was quite a swindler.

May-28-10  apexin: I found it. It was way too easy for a friday puzzle.
May-28-10  ohfluckaduck: Good fighting draw! Love Nimzovitch's play.
Apr-27-11  Tigranny: Isn't 98.Kb1 a blunder because 98...Rb8 99.Rxb8 leads to stalemate?
Nov-07-11  mslr45: 88...Rb7 and its draw sortly

  Sastre: If 88...Rb7, 89.Rd3+ Rb3 90.Rd1 still wins.
Jun-30-12  Tigranny: I once had a game in which I planned to have a crazy rook but my opponent snatched it right away allowing me to be stalemated.

  Penguincw: Wow, another draw (so I guess I was wrong, and <Brit> was right).

H Wolf vs Rubinstein, 1907

Anyway, 5 straight draws. :| I know, let's have a "Draw no-bet" for tomorrow's GOTD! I'm putting 5 cbs on 1-0. :)

Jun-06-15  RookFile: Nimzo was young when this was played. Interesting ending.

  morfishine: All in all, an intriguing opening - middlegame sequence of moves. A middlegame that seemed to go on and on

The final theme has always fascinated me. I even pulled it off once at the club

  kevin86: Funny finish,to say the least!
Jun-06-15  goodevans: I've really enjoyed <draw week> and today's game was no exception despite white's last-move blunder.
Jun-06-15  goodevans: P.S. And a truly excellent pun on the less common meaning of "evening".
Jun-06-15  A.T PhoneHome: Eh, hasn't this been a GOTD before, with the same pun?

Unless my mind fails me, of course. And I don't have any problems with games that get to be GOTD multiple times (it's inevitable here).

Interesting game it is, I admit! :)

Sep-23-15  The Kings Domain: :-) Good and unique game. Gotta love how white has black at the mercy of his rook. One can't help but yell, "Draw already!".
