Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-09-05  aw1988: Absolutely brilliant.
Oct-09-05  who: Nimzo was probably thinking should I win like this or should I overprotect j9 so I have another example for my book.
Oct-30-05  Mate Hunter: 16.Nxc6!! and White won a piece or mate. 16...bxc6 would be better than 16...Rxd1??
Aug-07-06  prinsallan: 18... Rg8 is also bad. Better, but still bad was Kb8
Dec-24-07  JG27Pyth: My word! I love the finish. I'm surprised this hasn't been a G-O-T-D yet.
Dec-24-07  psmith: <prinsallan> 18... ♔b8 is mate in two.

18... ♔b8 19. ♖d8+ ♔b7 20. ♖b1# (the ♗ covers a6).

Jul-06-08  Xeroxx: What a surprise fer da blak plaier!
May-13-09  marknierras: Amazing move 15...dxc6; advance calculation on the checkmate; brilliant; lesson: cage the king with 2 rooks...

I believe it's customary to refrain from including blurbs lauding one's accomlishments.

If you're at all familiar with the track record of the <Life Baiter>, you surely understand that self-aggrandisement is his lifeblood.

He's taken up spamming on this site into the bargain.

Apr-13-11  I Like Fish: now it is vital...
to pay attention...
Apr-20-11  bartonlaos: Whatever happened to <I Like Fish>?
Apr-21-11  I Like Fish: is as happy as a lark...
and spends all the time...
in the garden...
and grills tasty fishes...
my mouth is watering...

Oct-21-18  JimNorCal: In Reinfeld's book Nimzovich the Hypermodern he quotes Nimzo around move 17. I don't have the book anymore but the quote goes something like this:

"And now my good friend Dr Fluss leaned comfortably back in his chair as one who would say 'the endgame will not be so easy but we'll find a way'."

Needless to say, comfort quickly changed to dismay.
