  whiteshark: Yet another challenging game by Nimzowitsch. He refused to attack the pawn chain until his move <26...c5>.

You can find his annotations almost identical in his book <The praxis of my system>, game 49, as well as in the tournament book.

Very interesting. Then it suggests the liquidation with 30...Nxe5 was premature, and probably Black should have kept up the pressure with <30...Rc4> instead.
