Aug-26-10  ozmikey: You don't see many games where Black achieves all his strategical objectives in the Nimzo so easily! From about the tenth move, White just has no play at all...just a bunch of pieces stuck doing nothing on the queenside.

  Fusilli: <ozmikey> You are right. Not too often one sees a GM play like a patzer. Striking demonstration of superior, yet essentially commonsense and simple, chess.

  fredthebear: This reminds me of a Dutch Defense, which Short also played. Black instructively shifts his attack from the kingside through the center to the queenside. The once stable e4-pawn evaporates. A nice exchange sacrifice removes one defender followed by a good bit of work by the Black knights!

In the final position, Black can play 33...Bf5 forming a spearhead w/the queen for a support mate Qb1. Interposing is futile. If 34.Qe6+ BxQe6 35.dxBe6 Rf1 36.e7 RxNc1+ BxRc1 37.QxBc1#.
