May-16-03  Ribeiro: Great playing by Nimzowitsch! The game brings to my mind "Reti vs. Tartakower" and "Anderssen vs. Dufresne", because of the beautiful combination of an open column and a double check.

  Hanada: Wow, I am impressed.

I'm afraid to say that my Nimzo knowledge is not up to par as I have never read My System but it looks like I may have to buy a copy.

Looks like RegencyAgent was right after all.

  Aron Landau: Nimzowitsch says about this game in his book "Mein System" on page 146 : "On December 5th, 1910 I gave a simultane"......
His opponent was "Pastor Ryckhoff". The scoresheet does not mention this. You can also find this game in G.H. Marten's book "Aaron Nimzowitsch, Ein Leben fr das Schach" op page 54.

Thanks!

  Infohunter: To answer your question, <itz2000>, this game appears on page 131 of my copy of the Tartan Books trade paperback edition of _My System_. This was in the old descriptive notation. If this page numbering doesn't jibe with that of the edition of which you have a copy, then this should help: The game is described in the very last paragraph of the chapter entitled "Discovered Check". This is in the First Part, Chapter Eight.

Sep-08-06  RobertlewisIR: I'm impressed. I'm reading My System now, and I can't wait to see what he has to say about this game. It's almost unbelievable.
