  Chessical: Wolf is winning in the final position:

<31. Kd1> Qg1+ 32. Ke2 Qxh2+ 33. Kf1 Qh3+ (not 33...Qxg3? 34. Qf6+ Kg8 35. Bd5 mate) 34. Kf2 Qd7 35. Qf6+ Kg8 36. Qxe5

It seems that <29...Qe1+> would have assured a draw for Nimzowitsch, but perhaps after dominating the game for so long he wanted more.

  MissScarlett: Apparently, the game score is wrong on two counts. According to the score given in the <BDE>, April 2nd 1905, White interpolated <27. Qd7+ Kh8 28. Qe8+ Kg7 29. Qd7+ Kh8 30. Qc8+ Kg7>, and Nimzo didn't slip, playing <Chessical>'s 33...Qe1+. Correction submitted.
