Premium Chessgames Member Honza: <, this game wasn't played by Aron Nimzowitsch, but by Efim Bogoljubow. The same game is twice in the database. See Vidmar vs Bogoljubow, 1922 and Vidmar vs Bogoljubow, 1922 (Maybe I am missing something but all three games seems to have the same gamescore. Two of them includes some annotations and probably that is why they can be in the database together.)> Thank you for all you do to help sort-out the database. And yes, that's exactly why its permitted to exist twice, because of the annotation.

This game will remain and the others have been removed.

  Benzol: <Whitehat1963> 38...♔e7 would appear to be forced and after 39.♖xd5 he's two bishops down.
Sep-05-08  Whitehat1963: There you go, <Benzol>. Thanks for providing reason number 4,764,320 for why I'll never be a grandmaster.
Mar-02-18  goser: Vidmar was very efficient against Bogoljubow. Maybe only Capablanca was even more efficient.
