Apr-21-09  DoubleCheck: Great example game of controling the f-file

24... Bh3+!
25. Nxh3 Qf3+
26. Kg1 Nxh3#

Aug-28-12  backrank: Some impressive knight play here. It's often overlooked what a stupendous tactician Nimzo was, and that he mastered open positions as well as the closed ones for the handling of which he was so famous.

  Honza Cervenka: Nimzo could have played 17...Nxe3! 18.Qxh5 Nxg2 19.Qg6 Nxe1 20.Nf4 Nf3 21.Rf1 Ne5 with a Rook and two minors for the Queen and huge advantage. In the game after 19.Nxg4 Nxg4 20.b3 g5 21.Kg1 white would be OK but passive 19.Nf1 and especially 20.Ng1 let Nimzo finish the game by quick attack.

Or 26...Qh1#.
