Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-16-10  AnalyzeThis: Nimzo voluntarily plays 4...Bxc3 without being provoked by a3. Bogo does him one better by retaking with the pawn.

Capablanca must have rolled his eyes when he played over this game.

  Honza Cervenka: This is deep hypermodernism in its extreme. Nimzo trades the Knight on c3 with intention to control e4 asap and doesn't care about a tempo spent by white on a2-a3. On the other hand by retaking on c3 with Pawn Bogo does not allow to achieve Nimco's objective and prepares a building of strong Pawn centre. These are basic positional ideas behind all Nimzo.Indian defense. Don't forget that theory of Nimzo-Indian was then at its beginning
Jan-16-10  AgentRgent: <Honza Cervenka> AnalyzeThis doesn't actually care about the game itself, he's just looking for an outlet to slander Nimzowitsch.
