|Feb-21-05|| ||nasmichael: Controlling space, Black sends both players towards a King+Pawns endgame in Black's favor. |
|Mar-08-05|| ||aw1988: Instructive comments. |
|Sep-27-05|| ||Kriegspiel: Chernev lists a different ending:
36.Kc2 b5 (resigned, 0-1) with a hypothetical continuation suggested.
See Logical Chess: Move By Move, Batsford, 1998, p.156.
|Feb-24-07|| ||Octavia: I believe the comments under the bd are by Nimzowitsch|
|Feb-25-07|| ||Octavia: The comments are in game 3 in "My system" chapter 3
If you asked me which to study first, I'd say that Chernev is easier! 2nd book: Mcdonald's "Art of logical thinking" & only then Nimzowitsch! I've seen the latter praised often, but I found it far too difficult.

|Feb-03-09|| ||centercounter: Znosko Borovsky makes it look too easy. Probably because very often, people who play the Stonewall or Colle do so to mask their own laziness. In this case, it was quite clear that Vliet was making system moves and did not understand anything.|
|Nov-27-10|| ||bystander: This is the 3rd illustrative game of "My system". After 8) cd4x black has an advantage and Nimzowitch uses this game as an example for an attack on the second row by black.|
|Nov-27-10|| ||bystander: 9)Qe2 Bd7 10 Ne5, Nd3x+ 11) Qd3x Rc8 12) Nd7 Qd7x 13) O-O Be7 does not look good for white too.|
|Nov-27-10|| ||bystander: 10) 0-0 Rc8 11)Qb3 Bb5 12) Re1 a5 also with an advantage for black.|
|Nov-27-10|| ||bystander: Why not 11) ab4x? 11)ab4x Qc1x 12) Ra7x Qb2x 13) O-O Qb4x 14) Bd3 Bd6.|
Although white is one pawn down, he prevented the invasion along the c-file.
