  whiteshark: You won't find this game in Nimzowitsch's <Chess Praxis>.
Nov-06-07  parisattack: :) You can only push the rules so far, I guess. But give Nimzo credit for always wanting to explore the strategic limits of chess.
Feb-01-12  RookFile: Why should we give a guy credit for making a lot of pawn moves in the opening, and wasting tempo?
Dec-22-13  Yogiraj: Immediate mate is not pissible.
Jun-22-18  goser: Cruel punishment in a critical point of the tournament!

  OhioChessFan: Awful. Maybe he should have tried this opening out in training before doing it in a tournament.
Nov-04-18  cunctatorg: Crime (1. f4 ?!) and punishment...

1. d4 (1. c4; 1. Nf3) d5 isn't bad but 1. f4 with the very ambition to emerge victorious (being white) seems to me like a blasphemy... Too much research...

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 3.b3?!,d4! already puts White in some difficulties against a player in peak form. 3.Nf3 was required.

  al wazir: 23. Rh8, threatening 24. Nxg7/Bxg7, would have given white some play. White is at most one ♙ down.

  offramp: Today's GoD title, <"My System Has a Virus!">, was provided by User: lokaz.

I don't know when she submitted this pun.

User: lokaz joined in August 2010 and was last seen on 28th November 2011. In the intervening 13 months she drive-by-shot 39 memorable kibitzes, and at least one Pun Submission.

Then she stopped forever.

Where is <Lokaz> now? Does she know about this retarded moment in the sun?

I doubt it.

Dec-10-18  goodevans: After 24 moves white is a pawn down without compensation.

So far, so bad, but then he eschews the possibility of keeping the deficit to one pawn for no obvious reason. In the end, being unable to stop those two Q-side pawns killed him off.

Bxg7 (possibly after 25.Bd5+) was necessary and would have kept up some fight. Bizarre that he didn't do this.

Dec-10-18  TheTamale: <Lokaz> is like the wind... through my tree.
Dec-10-18  Nietzowitsch: Though one may disagree with <Frederic Aaron Nietzowitsch’> belief system there remains room to enjoy his work. He was very poignant, brashly honest, and sometimes quite profound in his writings. <Nietzowitsch>, of course, was arguably the most abrupt and abrasive of atheistic chess thinkers of his time.

  offramp: I think Aron Nimzowitsch was a jejune parvenu.

However, it was/is a great pun and I am glad it finally got used!

great job, <lokaz>!!!

you should get your own infinite-dimensional Hilbert space as reward.

Pretty good, creative misspelling! But was Nietzsche strictly speaking, in a deep sense, an atheist? His main thing was that since Darwin men (people) can empower themselves and so on. His writing leans toward the impassioned and the poetic. He like Wagner and his work but they fell out partly due to Wagner's anti-Semitic writings.

After his death his sister, married to a pro-Nazi and a keen Wagnerian (not that Wagner would necessarily have been a Nazi) pushed the Nazis to adopt Nietzsche's ideas and I think also his superman ideas. But his super man was a kind of intense, enlightened man...

This is from some reading and also watching some YouTubes on him and a few others.

_________________________

But as to the Nimzovich or which or however he is spelt...I think his system was and still is good. It is still necessary for most of us to utilize many of his ideas. Overprotection, blokade etc. But the system needs to be updated. Keene wrote an in depth book about Nimzovich and played systems similar to Nimzovich.

That is one method by the way for a player, to follow someone such as Nimzovich especially taking account of certain pawn structures in the openings used (Keene played a lot of Reti's and so on)...
