Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-05  fgh: No kibitzing? Brilliant finish!!!!
Feb-13-05  Leviathan: This opening shows many of Nimzowitsch ideas: he immediatly sacs a pawn to blockade black's center, then he starts to overprotect the weak pawn e5. When the overprotection is completed, he "wins without effort, because the great strategy of overprotection leads automatically to a won position" (at least that's what he used to say). A brilliant game anyway.
Aug-09-08  JonathanJ: well, kmoch used to say that when parodying nimzo.
Jun-03-09  totololo: A game with a lot of strategic and tactical content.
Dec-08-10  Jaburu: 15 ...f6 was played perhaps to oppose to the maneuver Nf1-Nh2-Ng4-Nf6 although it is not known in what would give. Actually this black rupture creates External and Interior Lines of Communications for both with increase of the Operational Space around the threatened black king, an advanced form of Philosophical Defense.

Jul-31-17  MarkBuckley: Looks like Systemsson helped this guy prepare...
