Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-08-08  Ulhumbrus: A very small part of what happens after move 38 can be expressed as follows: A few moves later Nimzowitsch replaces the R on b3 blockading the b pawn with his N ( 44 Nb3), then a few moves after that Nimzovich replaces this N back with the Rook ( 55 Rb3) after which Nimzovich throws his pawns forward and wins. A little more detail can be filled in: each time Nimzovich replaces one blockader with another, he attacks the blockade point with the second blockader as if in order to relieve the first. In other words, when changing a guard, the second guard comes within stepping distance of the post before the first guard vacates it for the second.
May-24-13  JimNorCal: Berger puts up stiff resistance.
Others have pointed to some of his games against Alekhine in which he acquits himself well.

What a thrill and honor it must have been to play in London 1927 against top GMs.

Jan-06-20  SChesshevsky: Seems really good judgement, setup, and execution of the exchange sac at 31. Rxe4. Guessing Petrosian, a Nimzowitsch fan, knew this game well.
