The well-supported White d6-knight is a beautiful example of what Reinfeld calls <"an outpost in a controlled open file">.

The White knight on Q6 (d6) is not defended by a White pawn so this one aspect of the strict definition of an outpost is not fulfilled. On the other hand, Black can not drive back the White d6-knight with a pawn either. Moreover the White d3-knight is <OVERPROTECTED> by three White pieces (d2-,d1-rooks and g3-bishop) so it is fairly safe.

Mar-12-13  Ulhumbrus: In his book on the tournament Nimzovich says that Capablanca crushes Maroczy completely and calls this "a singularly impressive game"
