  Chessical: A clear example of not blockading and restraining White's centre in the Nimzo-Indian. Rossolimo's play aginst f7 provides a very clear and effective model.

<14..Qe7?!> allows Rosolimop to play with advantage, Golombek had to play 14...Ne7 to give himself the manoeuvre Ng6.

<19...Kh8> hangs on with a miserable position

<20...Qe8> fails to 21.e5!(21...dxe5 22.Rxg6+!)

  offramp: This game is just a total walkover. Was Golombek really the best that Britain had?
Feb-28-14  RedShield: Well, until the rise of the mighty Penrose, it was a toss up between Harry and Hugh Alexander (and he was a mick).
