Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-08-08  ToTheDeath: Nimzovich also lost his temper at the end of the Marienbad tournament in 1925, which he would have won had he defeated Spielmann in the last round. But that game ended in a draw, and Nimzovich had to share first and second prizes with Rubinstein. He was so disappointed that he openly accused Spielmann of dishonor".

-Hans Kmoch, Grandmasters I Have Known.

Oct-08-08  mpl: Instead of accusing his oponent, Nimzowitch better should have tried: 33. f5+! gxf5 34. ♖d2! using the 6'th rank and the d-file to attack the nearly immobile bishop on d7 to pick up at least the exchange. E.g.:

33. f5+! gxf5 34. ♖d2! (Δ ♗c3, ♖d6) ♖e7 35. ♖h6+ ♔f7 36. ♗f6
