  Chessical: Menchik plays the then very topical Nimzowitsch Defence against which her opponent suddenly appears to decides he is honour bound to instigate an attack with Kh1, <g4>, and <Rg1>. Yet there are no weaknesses for him to bite upon as Menchik has a solid King-side and increasing control of the centre. Thus, his attacking gesture leaves only weaknesses.

<9.Be3> which does not encourage <e5> seems more promising <9...Nf6> 10.e5 Ng4 11.e6 d5 12.exf7+ Rxf7

<12.Kh1> planning the K-side attack by making <g!> available for the Rook, but play in the centre is more appropriate, e.g. <12.Rd1> Qe7 13.Bd5 with an advantage.

<13.g4?!>; again <13.Rd1> is a preferable alternative <13...Nf6> 14.Nbd2 Ng4 15.Bd5 Nxe3 16.Qxe3.White's "attack" never gets off the ground, instead he is increasingly troubled by the Black squared weaknesses around his King.
