Sep-19-07  nolanryan: therefore, dus chotimirsky is better than nimzowitsch

  ray keene: except that nimzo crushed him in their other decisive game!
Sep-19-07  euripides: I wonder if this rather painful experience, in a system often credited to Rubinstein, prodded Nimzowitsch in his much later adoption of 1.b3 and play on the long black diagonal.

  whiteshark: <18...Ne4??> was a blunder. Nimzowitsch must have missed something. After <18... Nd7>

white hardly can't avoid 19. Qxe7 Bxe7 and thereafter it should be an equal position.

  whiteshark: As Tartakower once commented <Black missed excellent resigning chances!>
Apr-29-09  lentil: I can almost hear Nimzo growling: "I vould rrazzer get mated zan rresign to zis idiot!"
Apr-29-09  YoungEd: You're right, <whiteshark>, that 18. ...♘e4 was the source of Black's problems. But that's only because White was able to find 20. ♗f6! If Black doesn't abandon his ♕, then 21. ♕h6 leads to a forced mate. Good win for D-C!
