Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-05  chesscrazy: Nimzowitsch missed 25...Rhe8! Play might have continued 26.Rfe2 Nxg2! 27.Rxe8 Nf4+ 28.Qe4 Rxe8 with a win.

NN (which I think is a group of amateurs from Norway [Source: IM Silman's How to Reassess Your Chess]) should have played 15.b4! Play might have continued 15...Nf5 16.Qd3 h5 17.Nd4 and now black is in trouble. His only chance of survival (aside of NN making a huge blunder)is 17...g6! Then after 18.a4 white would have a slight advantage.

Dec-17-05  hidude: NN is NOT a group of amateurs, as Nimzo almost got <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< KILLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Mar-16-06  Knight13: In the book Chess Praxis, Nimzovich calls the players with White pieces "Norwegian Amatuers."
Oct-14-07  Erdkunde: The amateurs were being completely outplayed until 25. f5!. I wouldn't say Nimzowitsch almost got "killed"; at worst he needed to prevent White from drawing.
