Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-01-10  Cushion: I find it slightly amusing that Nimzowitsch assumes that the best anti sicilian is only good enough to play for a draw with.

  plang: One of the early c3 Sicilian games. A little surprised that this game was included in Chess Praxis as Nimzovich didn't show much ambition in the game.
May-21-21  Granny O Doul: Here is something I'd never heard--"With hanging pawns the bishop must be played to B(sic)e2 and not to d3." I wonder why?
May-21-21  SChesshevsky: <Granny O Doul> Think Nimzo's talking about these hanging pawns in particular and in general positional terms.

Positionally, hanging pawns on the same rank are preferred and most mobility behind them is probably also best.

Seems Bd3, by just being in the way, weakens d4 which could hinder the advance c4.
