  Calli: An endgame error from Akiba. His 28.Rd4? loses a pawn. Even the best players come up with a clinker when you least expect it. Some nice pressure on B2 by Nimzo.

  acirce: After move 21:

<This position is a good example of dynamic equality: nobody can get the upper hand here. Nimzowitsch wrote that 22. Kf1 Kf8 23. Kg1 Kg8 would be an appropriate finale.>

  nasmichael: An open board, K + 3P + N versus K + 4P (one of those being a passed pawn) with a bishop to assist, in the endgame. For the novice, this may be a good game to look at after move 32...Bxa2.
Jan-07-07  Warehouse Duffer: Starting with move 33, Nimzowitsch takes a look at this ending in his End Game chapter in My System. He was able to infiltrate White's Kingside behind the W Pawns.

  Phony Benoni: This game was played in round 2, after Rubinstein had a bye in round 1. THings would get better. Perhaps it was games like this that led him to come up with the g3 line against the Tarrasch.

Regarding the "dynamic equality" at move 21--I think it was Suba, in a collection of his games, who remarked that a poor position that is capable of improvement may be more promising than a theoretically superior but static position which cannot be improved.

Dec-29-11  MyDogPlaysChess: "This well-knit position with its extraordinary economy and ideally posted forces is akin to a Greek work of art. Nothing should have been changed in this position seeped in perfection."

I should keep this line in mind to annotate my own games.
