Oct-09-05  aw1988: Absolutely brilliant.
Oct-09-05  who: Nimzo was probably thinking should I win like this or should I overprotect j9 so I have another example for my book.
Oct-30-05  Mate Hunter: 16.Nxc6!! and White won a piece or mate. 16...bxc6 would be better than 16...Rxd1??
Aug-07-06  prinsallan: 18... Rg8 is also bad. Better, but still bad was Kb8
Dec-24-07  JG27Pyth: My word! I love the finish. I'm surprised this hasn't been a G-O-T-D yet.
Dec-24-07  psmith: <prinsallan> 18... ♔b8 is mate in two.

18... ♔b8 19. ♖d8+ ♔b7 20. ♖b1# (the ♗ covers a6).

Jul-06-08  Xeroxx: What a surprise fer da blak plaier!
May-13-09  marknierras: Amazing move 15...dxc6; advance calculation on the checkmate; brilliant; lesson: cage the king with 2 rooks...

I believe it's customary to refrain from including blurbs lauding one's accomlishments.

If you're at all familiar with the track record of the <Life Baiter>, you surely understand that self-aggrandisement is his lifeblood.

He's taken up spamming on this site into the bargain.

and spends all the time...
in the garden...
and grills tasty fishes...
my mouth is watering...

  MissScarlett: <The Nil on the Fluss>
Oct-21-18  JimNorCal: In Reinfeld's book Nimzovich the Hypermodern he quotes Nimzo around move 17. I don't have the book anymore but the quote goes something like this:

"And now my good friend Dr Fluss leaned comfortably back in his chair as one who would say 'the endgame will not be so easy but we'll find a way'."

Needless to say, comfort quickly changed to dismay.

  plang: Nice miniature.

Black's opening 6..Bxc3+ (why not 6..Ne4) and 7..Nc6 was not good but Nimzovich did not really take advantage of it.

It was the faulty piece sacrifice that ultimately led Black astray.
