Jul-11-06  RookFile: 35. Nf5 and 36. Nxd6?? Tartakower ought to be shot for playing this way.
Jul-02-07  ChessDude33: <Rookfile> now I don't think 35.Nf5 was that bad but i do think the next move was horrible...I brought the gun, where is he?
Jul-03-07  Atking: Tartakower plaid this one incredibly well. As a superb challenger he tried to outplayed Nimzowitch on his own style. I think White must go for an attack on the King side (Even if the a pawn falls) by 25.Qe2 26.Raf1 for 27.f4

Apr-03-09  wanabe2000: White might have had a better game by leaving the Rook on f1 and playing f4 at some point before move 54.
May-04-10  candide1500: I cant see how 36.Nxd6 was bad. How was Tartakower to obtain any chances on the c-file without removing the dark squared bishop? I think 23.Kh2 and 24.Rh1 were misguided tho. 41.Rc5 seems to be the decisive mistake.

  keypusher: Sort of like Petrosian-Fischer match game six for most of the way.

  Calli: Nimzowitsch said the draw was 46.Qa2 Qe6 47.Qa8 Qb6 48.Qa2 etc
Oct-30-11  Ulhumbrus: The way Nimzovich handles this as Black - playing for a Queen side attack- brings to mind the way Fischer played with a similar pawn wedge in the centre against Petrosian, in the game Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971
Mar-01-15  Ulhumbrus: The move 56 Rc2 suggests that White would like to play 56 Nh4 threatening 57 Nf5+ but has not time for it. On 56 Nh4 Black has 56...Qa2+

On 58...Rc1!! White's rook on c2 is pinned along the second rank to White's king and pinned along the c file to White's queen, so it cannot move.
