May-23-05  Jaymthetactician: A reversed Nimzo-Indian? I think I'm going to be sick! Without Nimzovich to give his theoretical knowledge and teaching's of this opening, then I don't know how anyone back then could even attempt at such a thing! And why a draw, black win's this!

Jan-21-12  optimal play: <Jaymthetactician><A reversed Nimzo-Indian? I think I'm going to be sick! Without Nimzovich to give his theoretical knowledge and teaching's of this opening, then I don't know how anyone back then could even attempt at such a thing!>

Numerous attempts at various things have to be tried until eventually somebody comes along to work out the best method.

<And why a draw, black win's this!>

After 74.Re8 it's not a win for Black if White plays correctly.

The King at h1 blocks the h-pawn;
the Bishop is anchored on the a8-h1 diagonal;
the Rook is free to harass Black's Queen.
Without any mistakes a draw is the eventual outcome.

<cpryob123><I don't mind the nimzo indian, I dislike the end game>

Perhaps 49...Qd2 might be an improvement?
A possible continuation could be 50.Ree8 Qh2+ 51.Kf1 g2+ 52.Bxg2 Qxg2+ 53.Ke1 Qg1+ 54.Rf1 Qg3+ 55.Rf2 Qd3 56.Ree2 Rg1+ 57.Rf1 Qc3+ 58.Rd2 Qc1+ wins.
