  Chessical: An early game of Nimzowitsch's in which his style is still quite conventional. Cohn allows Nimzowitsch to build up a threatening K-side attack, and then misses the opportunity to relieve the pressure on his K-side by exchanging white squared buishops with <17...Bxd3>.
Mar-15-06  EmperorAtahualpa: 14.O-O! awesome move....
Dec-24-07  JG27Pyth: 18...Na6? is just awful. After 19.Qg4, black is doomed.

but I like this game alot. I like the N maneuver bringing the Qside N to the Kingside... Ne2, Ng3... the sort of thing I would never play because it violates too many 'principles'

  whiteshark: The <Barmen 1905> tournament was a real desaster for Nimzowitsch. Probably the worst tournament of his career. <Goteborg 1920> comes second.

  TheFocus: Carlsbad 1911 was another bad one.
5= with +1-5=9.

Most consider Goteborg to be the worst.
