And white mates with his last two pieces.
A great game which does not diminish in beauty for being well known. Love those comments!
|May-20-10|| ||randomsac: This a wild game. I love white's total domination of the center files.|
|May-20-10|| ||gars: |
My copy of "My System" (G. Bell and Sons, 1950), states that this game was played in Carlsbad, 1911, not in Saint Petersburg, 1914. The notes on the book and on the page are the same, verbatim.
|May-20-10|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Great pun.|
|May-20-10|| ||kevin86: A good game. Black stopped to grab pawns while white developed his pieces;guess who won?|
|May-20-10|| ||maxi: Good pin pun.|
|May-20-10|| ||chrisowen: White is rolling in the aisles. A rondezvous of French drama: knights meeting in the middle, rooks arriving on time and forget me not
flowering bishop. Beautiful sacs, Semion is caught plum berating no restraint. I take my hat and jacket off My Systern was a great read.
Looking caught flush 14.Bf6 winds the river up. Alapin rabbits away but mate is unstoppable, can he put a cork in it? No down under
the guilltoine falls. Nimzowitsch ducks the immediate blow 15.Bxc6 carry's whistling Re1. Reinforcements plaster the black king no aid
shall succour the hole he's dug. Overall performance up and down board, Nimzowitsch majestic.|
|May-20-10|| ||maxi: <chrisowen> Alapin rabbits and Nimzowitsch ducks?|
|May-20-10|| ||David2009: The puns, and the pins, are getting better and better.|
|May-20-10|| ||Chessmensch: The annotator doesn't like 9...Qxg2. This is Deep Fritz 12's 2nd preferred move at depth 20/51 (and just fractionally behind ...e5). The annotator also doesn't like 11...e5. Deep Fritz 12 has this move tied with ...Be7 as the preferred move at depth = 21/50.|
|May-20-10|| ||chrisowen: Makes a nice game pie don't you think ..<Maxi>? Mumbled black dis geeser eddy the currents spinning a 180 on me. Nice dynamics 3.knight in French Classic. Any student of the re xchange? My mate Roland N Doe mitigates it when darting for a bankers draw. The sacs are gold, 14.bishop's up looks real attractive, state of wining for white vindecates paying dividends.|
|Aug-19-10|| ||sevenseaman: This the kind of game that jells with my temperament. In Nimzo's shoes I'll be hard put to find 14. Bf6. That surely ought to be the end of my ambition.|

|Oct-23-10|| ||bystander: The first Illustrative game in "My system" of Aron Mimzowitch. After 3 chapters with concepts, 10 illustrative games. Ercan put them in a game collection already so I will start viewing them with computer assistance.|

|Oct-23-10|| ||bystander: <ozmikey 10-11-10 Some notes on this game and comments on the dating, thanks to the indefatigable Mr. Winter:> I did not read this post properly. Mr. Winter gives 5 possible years and places were this game could have been played. See link attached to ozimikeys' post.|
|Nov-01-10|| ||Elsinore: Since this game bears a strong resemblance to "A Night at The Opera", perhaps the pun should be "Mate A La Morphy". I'm guessing that Semion Alapin is the creator of the Alapin variation in the Sicilian (2.c3)|
|Nov-13-10|| ||SirChrislov: The date and location of this game remain a ?? to this day.|

... refers to item #6784 from the October 2010 issue of Chess Notes:
|Jan-09-12|| ||shakespeare: Maybe Nimzo saw the more elegant mate and choose it - because 15. Bxc6 something takes the B - 16.Rhe1+ some pieces interposes and mate next move - would have been the fastest mate|
|Jan-09-12|| ||RookFile: 9....Qxg2 was really bad. It's a beginner's idea to go hunting for material, already down in time. Make a move like that and you deserve whatever happens to you.|
|Feb-01-12|| ||Llawdogg: Wow! Very much in the spirit of Morphy's Opera House Game. Many sacrifices culminating with a queen sacrifice and a rook checkmate down the middle supported by a bishop.|
|Apr-12-12|| ||hotwax: "Notes by Nimzowitsch except where noted."
Unfortunate wording :)
|Apr-12-12|| ||Calli: The year (1914) and place (St. Petersburg) are finally established by Per Skjoldager's research: http://chesshistory.com/winter/wint...|
|Jun-05-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Nimzowitsch vs Alapin, 1914.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF NIMZOWITSCH.
Your score: 33 (par = 24)
