Aug-01-09  solskytz: It probably inspired the spoof "Systemsson" game - just looking at the opponent's name should be enough to understand this

  Phony Benoni: <solskytz> Possibly, but I think this game had a larger influence: P F Johner vs Nimzowitsch, 1926

  muwatalli: this is a very great game.
Feb-19-10  siegbert: 23 Nec6 does look better than nf5. I see above that i am not the first to notice the improvement though whites position is such that any normal developing moves should lead to a large plus for him (white).
Jun-02-10  rapidcitychess: Why is 6...f5 played? It seem like Black's knight should go there. Is there a tactic that I am missing? In all games played with the Nimzo-Gambit 6..f5 is played! Why?

  Marmot PFL: 6...Qc7 looks better. That way black can play f6 as Qh5+ would be met by Qf7. Smyslov vs Lisitsin, 1942
Sep-23-10  sevenseaman: This gotta be the prettiest mate? Any one for a better one?

  kingscrusher: Hi all

Isn't this game related to the made up game by Hans Kmoch - the immortal overprotection game. It has a lot of similarities.

  TheFocus: This is from a match. There were actually two matches played between these players according to Per Sklodager, who is writing a new biography about Nimzowitsch due out next year. He gave me a previously unknown game against Hakansson from one of these matches. Can't share it with you, wait for the book.
Nov-24-10  sevenseaman: Not only is the title pun inspired by the Black Q's quarantine on a8 its isolation also marks White's total sway over 'C' file which Black K cannot run away from.
Jun-01-11  belgradegambit: This game had a profound influence on me. I am an e4 player who was never comfortable playing against the French. This gambit is one with a plan and clear ideas: hold onto the e5 pawn for dear life and develop the kingside quickly. I have played a number of successful queenside attacks as in this game with my queen stuck on the kingside

  Garech: I had another look at this given the opening of the day and decided that it's definitely one of my favourite Nimzowitsch games of all time.
