  GrahamClayton: This draw against the tail-ender cost Nimzovich 1st outright in the Marienbad tournament.

That's because 58... a2 doesn't win.

  perfidious: <GrahamClayton: This draw against the tail-ender cost Nimzovich 1st outright in the Marienbad tournament.>

This game was played in the very first round; that could hardly have been the case.

Mar-28-15  nhnsn: I was thinking in 58...a2 59.h8=Q a1=Q+ 60.K moves Qxh8.
Mar-29-15  Nerwal: <I was thinking in 58...a2 59.h8=Q a1=Q+ 60.K moves Qxh8.>

Indeed but after 58... a2 59. ♔f6 a1=♕+ 60. ♔xf7 it's a different story.

Mar-29-15  Sleeping kitten: 52... a2 59. ♔f6 a1=♕+ 60. ♔xf7 ♕h8 would set a last trap : 61. ♘f6 loses. White must play 61. ♔g6, 62. ♘h6, 63. ♘f7 and Black king is just a square too far to win.
