Apr-21-09  DoubleCheck: Nimzowitsch proves minor pieces are more useful than rooks in kingside attacks

31... Bxh3!
32. gxh3?? Nf3+!
33. Qxf3 Qg1#

  perfidious: Nimzowitsch's 30....Bxh3 is an elegant exploitation of the superior activity of his pieces. Facing the threat of 33....Qxe3 34.Qxe3 Rxf1+ 35.Kh2 Ng4+ winning, White avoids that pitfall only to lose to another variant of the same idea.
