Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-04  fred lennox: A great rook ending. Nimzowitsch reliezes after 31.c4 white has a weakness to stop the e pawn. Weak when black plays...a6...b5 to open up the a or b file. So he creates a second weakness by 31...Rh6. "In this ending, as soon becomes clear, the K-side (the h3 and g4 pawns) is the decisive weakness". (Nimzowitsch)
Sep-26-12  birthtimes: White's 59th move was Rd2, not Rh2. Nevertheless, a masterful demonstration of maneuvering by Nimzowitsch, and the rook endgame very instructive!
