Nov-16-04  Knight13: How come Bird won? 26. Rg1 Nf2#. 26. Re1 Nf2#. 26. Bc2 Nf2#. Whatever move white makes, Black mates in the next move. Is this a time forfeit game?
Jun-05-05  Heavy Metal Thunder: 1878? This can't be Nimzowitsch.
Jun-05-05  aw1988: No, it can't be, but Knight13 said it was Bird...
Jun-05-05  Saruman: Or 26.d3/d4 Nf2+ 27.Kd2 Qxd3#/Qd3#.
Jun-05-05  Kangaroo: It should not be 1878, yet Nimzowitsch and Perlis might have it played 30 years later, around 1908.
Jun-05-05  Catfriend: Maybe <knight> meant Nd4, similar to the Bird variation in Ruy? But I don't undertand the <How come Bird won?> part - black won, and no surprises...
Feb-01-12  RookFile: In this game, we see Nimzo moving the queen three times in the opening, to try to snatch a measily pawn. He would have done better to have developed all his pieces and castled first.
