The notes on the book and on the page are the same, verbatim.> Interesting. My copy (Chess Classics, Quality Chess, Sweden 2007) states this game is played in Vilnis 1912.|
|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.|

<ozmikey: Some notes on this game and comments on the dating, thanks to the indefatigable Mr. Winter:>
... 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)
|Nov-27-14|| ||MindCtrol9: I remember a game of Murphy with the same mate where was based on pins killing the king with the only two pieces left which were Rook and Bishop.|
|Jul-12-15|| ||SpaceRunner: My copy states may 1914 !
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-05-17|| ||GrahamClayton: An awesome demonstration of open diagonals for the bishops and open files for the rooks!|
|Apr-30-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: 12 O-O-O!!! Now that's confidence! (or maybe "justifiable hubris", if it's not a contradiction in terms)|
|May-01-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Nothing wrong with 9... Qxg2 10. Bf3 Qh3 according to SF :)|
|Oct-16-18|| ||RookFile: 5...Nxc3 6. bxc3 Nd7 isn't bad.|
|Oct-16-18|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: For those wondering in general about <chrisowen> posts, his 2010 offering above is still somewhat coherent.|
|Oct-16-18|| ||OhioChessFan: Yeah, he started out that way. Then went to his best phase, the sort of, kind of, semi-coherent posts that told something of a narrative. Last couple years they've been bad, just a random series of single words with none of the charm that gave you a sense of "I can almost figure this out" that used to be so entertaining. Come on, <chrisowen>, get back on your game.|
|Oct-16-18|| ||dhotts: After move 13 the comments say White's advantage in development is too great...No kidding. This anti-development game by Alapin is a joke.|
