  Garech: Another of those games where it appears Nimzowitsch's opponent had read My System!

Surprising to see Nimzowitsch playing the four pawns attack, despite the fact, of course, that the KID was a relatively new opening at the time. It's a badly weakening variation for white, and a positional player like Nimzowitsch should see the potential for solid queenside play.



Jan-08-13  JimNorCal: Also, knights versus bishops in an open position.
Jan-08-13  fokers13: Let's not forget white had a pawn up going into the middlegame it just seems like the plan he follows from move 23 onwards is just wrong.

Even 23.Re4 with the threat of a direct kingside attack seems much more convincing.
