77-31_MG pattern: The Nievergelt Manoeuvre
Compiled by AdolfoAugusto
--*--

E Nievergelt vs Keres, 1959 (as eponym of <The Nievergelt Manoeuvre> where btw Fischer participated) but I think it was Taimanov vs Yusupov, 1982 which made the regrouping (aka <The Nievergelt Manoeuvre> ♔h1/♖g1/♙g4 resp. ♔h8/♖g8/♙g5) more widely known. Certainly in Hedgehog positions it has become a well-known means of gaining space on the kingside, though by now dangerous counter-reactions have been found for White.

A bit unusual (Rf8-ff6-h6 before ♙g7-g5) was the realisation here:
