  Chessical: Early Nimzowitsch playing a double fianchetto defence, enticing the <d> pawn foward to create and then undermine a double pawn complex on the <c> file. Unfortunately for Nimzowitsch, a tactical error then destroys his positional strategy.

<22...Qd6?!> and then <23...b5?> is an ingenious but flawed plan envisaging: <25. bxa6?!> Rxd3 26.Qc2 Rh3 27. Kg2 Rxh4.

Nimzowitsch, however, overlooks the fact that Gregory does not have to take the proffered bishop immediately. Instead, with <25. Nb1!> he can force Nimzowitsch to lose a tempo and a piece.

Feb-07-12  RookFile: If he had a strategy, I don't know what it was, other than moving knights as many times as possible in the opening.
