  ray keene: another amazing game by nimzo-everyone shd know it
Nov-08-04  Poisonpawns: Amazing game after 14.gxh4 it reminds me of Spassky vs Larsen (USSR vs Rest of the World)great attack on weakend kingside!note:15.Nc3 loses to Nb4! or Ne5 after 22..Qg5 white should try Bd4 and 24.Rf1 is just losing maybe Qh7, but Nimzos good beating seemed to beat the resistance out of Spielman :-)Fantastic Play by Nimzowitch

  An Englishman: Good Evening: An amazing display of Nimzo's unique tactical flair. Tal, Nezhmetdinov, Alekhine and Spielmann make me say "Wow!" Nimzowitsch makes me say "Huh?" I'm sure Spielmann thought Black had blundered away the Bishop with that 12th move.

Incidentally, Chessgames, is it possible to add the Nimzowitsch Defense to the drop-down menu on the home page? It isn't so easy to look up Nimzo's games with his own defense. Thanks.

Jan-07-05  azaris: <An Englishman> As Spielmann was intimately familiar with sacrifices and compensation, I doubt he missed the ensuing tactics. And it's not like he had anything better as 14. c3 Bg5 and the trick Nxe6 no longer works.
Nov-07-13  Papagambit: 27....Nb5+ ! is a quicker cleaner mate!
Nov-07-13  Papagambit: 27. ...Nb5+ 28.Kb2 Qe5+ W should resign. He can jetsam his B and c pawn, but then Kc1 Na3_ Kc1 Qa1++!

  kevin86: Nimzo can tie you in knots.
Nov-07-13  PurdyGUDsoFAR: Take a look at Alekhine vs. Nimzowitsch, St. Petersburg. Alekhine won the open champ, but in those Nimzowitsch was equal to any and all of his contemporaries in Tactical Slash and Burn play.
Nov-07-13  jffun1958: 29. Ka3 Nxb5+ 30. Ka4 Nc3+ 31. Ka3/a5 Qxa2#

29. Ka4 Qxa2+ 30. Na3 Qxb3+ 31. Ka5 Qxa3#

29. Ka5 Qxa2+ 30. Na3 Qxa3#

  PawnSac: < Papagambit: 27...Nb5+ ! is a quicker cleaner mate! >

yes true, but it depends on which one the brain sees first. When we see a move that leads to mate in all variations, we often just play it without looking for a shorter path. Its not necessary. Goal achieved. Game over. We stop looking.
