Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-10  candide1500: It seems odd that Nimzo would accept the draw at this point, 44.Rd7 seems to at least deserve a shot. For instance 44.Rd7 Qxc7 45.Rxc7 b6 46.a5 looks good for white. Nimzo did his best to overwhelm the backward d6 pawn and exploit the d5 square during the middlegame, but the stubborn Rubinstein would not crack.
Jul-08-18  goser: I wonder whether Nimzowitsch counted on 38. e5 and whether he oversaw perpetual (if he would win a piece). His advantage looked to be nearly decisive before that point.

  Telemus: In his notes in the tournament book Nimzowitsch criticizes 37.f4. Afterwards he thought that this breakthrough should have been better prepared by improving the king's position (37.♔f1 with the possibility to bring the king to b1).

In the final position he gave 44.♕xc6 (44.♖d7 ♕e4!) bxc 45.♖d7 c5 46.♔f2.
