|Sep-18-04|| ||lmxromero: This game appears in Nimzowitsch's "My System" as an example of how to destroy the center of the enemy.|
7..exd4! 8.cxd4 d5! and according to Nimzowitsch " and at a blow the e-pawn despite his freedom and mobility, vanishes, is pulverized! "
|Sep-18-04|| ||Lawrence: Hi, <lmxromero>, a warm welcome to the site. Nimzowitsch fan? |
|Feb-03-05|| ||fgh: 22. ... Ne7 is one of the nicest moves I have ever seen. |
|Jul-02-08|| ||TheKingOfSpades: Nimzowitsch is amazing! He understands the game (this game in particular). he handles the problem with white in the center, and gains a tempo, then closes in!!! spectacular|
|Jul-02-08|| ||Jesspatrick: The King of Spades
Took off his shades,
Proceeding to attack.
He did no time;
There was no crime
'cause it was Black on Black.
|Aug-06-08|| ||JonathanJ: isn't this a philidor by transposition?|
|Aug-06-08|| ||akapovsky: my system by nimzo is said to be the most damaging chess book ever written certain to damage your game|
|Aug-06-08|| ||Ludamad: akapovsky: Do you have good reference to a thorough criticism of the book? Basic google searches fail me.|
|Aug-07-08|| ||akapovsky: according to GM Neil Mcdonald|
|Aug-07-08|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: <JohnathanJ>, White's Nd2 instead of Nc3 keeps this from being a mainline Philidor--after 1.e4,d6; 2.d4,Nf6 White usually plays 3.Nc3,e5; 4.Nf3. I suppose that using 3.Nd2 would still count as a side variation of the Philidor, but White's better off with the N at c3. Incidentally, the modern treatment of the Philidor begins with 1...d6 because after 1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,d6; 3.d4,Nf6; 4.dxe5 is surprisingly annoying.|
As for the ending itself, it's still another example of Nimzo's amazing gift at playing R&B vs R&B endgames with Bishops of opposite colors.
|May-11-09|| ||HARSH GADHIYA: what a fantastic game!|
|Jul-07-12|| ||chessik: Good game of black!!
I have questions:
1)What is the purpose of 17...Qb6?
2)21.Qe2 --> Why does white change column?
3) 22.Bb1 Purpose?
|Jul-07-12|| ||JimNorCal: Fascinating.
About move 33, black has some pressure but even material, reduced material and opposite color bishops....one hardly expects a decisive result.
|Jul-07-12|| ||IMlday: I also think My System is a dangerous book for learning chess. Consider Nimzo's assessment that Black is better out of the opening. Most modern GMs, and Houdini, disagree. Without his 'system' Houdini might have found the straightforward refutation of 17.Be3? by 18..Nxe3 19.fxe3 c5 looking for the Bishop pair edge in an ending where White has lots of pawn targets. Despite many wrong moves, White is only seriously worse when he fails to find 30.Kf1 followed by Kf1-e1 ejecting the invasive Rook. Even then, if he had found 35.b5! Lee might yet have drawn.|
|Jul-07-12|| ||erniecohen: White draws rather easily after 42. h4 gxh4 43. f3 or 42...g5 43. ♔g3|
