Oct-11-06  notyetagm: What a beautifully played game by Nimzowitsch! It won the Best Game Prize in this tournament (London 1927), good for a prize of a measly 10 pounds (ref. Seirawan).

Outstanding positional play by Nimzowitsch leads to his pieces being placed aggressively on the d5-, f5-, and g3-squares, from which the White pawns can -never- evict them.

A tour de force by Nimzowitsch on the exploitation of <WEAK SQUARES>.

Sep-27-08  just a kid: Odd that in Winning Chess Strategies that Seirawan only gave 40 moves than 41.

  sleepyirv: Black's king stays in the center of the board with no pawn coverage, but it's White's that ends up in hot water.
Dec-21-08  Smothered Mate: <notyetagm>
The g pawn can evict the Nf5 if the Rg3 is evicted and the pawn gets protection.
Jan-02-12  Yue Jin: What would be the winning line after 40.Kh1?

  Sastre: 40.Kh1 Nxd4 41.Qd3 Rc2 42.Bg3 Qf3+ 43.Qxf3 Nxf3 .
Feb-19-12  aniceto: Chess Praxis gives 40... Ne3+ as the final move.
Jan-06-13  whiteshark: You know the maschines are making fun of us humans when they annotate <41.Kg1> as Novelty.

Mange tak for ingenting, Fritz!
