  keypusher: Very <Nimzo-witschy>.
Aug-30-06  sixfeetunder: This is Nimzo-witsch-craft.
Oct-02-06  AwaitingBlunder: What would have happened if, instead of 31.) Qxa6, White had played 31.) Rxg7?
Oct-02-06  thesonicvision:
Oct-02-06  thesonicvision: 30..Bxf4! indicates some amazing
calculation skills from the future

for example...
31. Rxg7 Qxg7
32. Bxf4 Bxf3+ and both of the
defenders of the g1 square are
33. Qxf3 Qg1++

Oct-02-06  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 13 h3, 13 Nc3 gets the QN out.
Oct-02-06  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 14 a4, 14 Nc3 gets the QN out.
Oct-02-06  Ulhumbrus: On 31 Rxg7 Qxg7 the White Q is tied to the defence of g2 and so cannot take the B on f4.
Oct-02-06  Ulhumbrus: Riumin beglected his development and so made successful a plan of attack for Botvinnik ( ...f5 and ...h6 in reply to g5 ) which Botvinnik might have been unable to succeed in carrying out otherwise.
