  DarthStapler: Super Nehz strikes again
Feb-26-08  Shams: very nice game. Boleslavsky picked the wrong diagonal for his dark-squared bishop.

they should award posthumous GM titles, and give Nezh the first one.

Apr-05-12  zakkzheng: nice attacking game.Nehc puts the guns at whites king
Feb-27-14  KokeFischer: Revenge is best served cold!
Feb-27-14  Everett: Nezh, like Bronstein, really enjoyed the King's House, and played the KID and KIA formations in almost every possible opening. Why? Both loved activity, and a safe king, even if it cost them space or material.
Feb-27-14  capafischer1: White's 2 bishops , queen and rook are completely out of position and doing nothing in the final position.
Feb-28-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: <Shams> had it quite right. The Ba3 plan didn't work at all.

  Mating Net: 27...Nxg2 was a sac first, ask questions later kind of move for Nez. I'll bet he snapped that pawn off the board in less than 3 seconds.
Oct-11-15  capafischer1: Great attacker. He had a plus combined score vs 5 world champions by 1 game.
