Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-08-05  WhoKeres: I recall reading a story about this game, where Nimzovich heartily congratulated Przepiorka after winning this game, despite not having spoken to him for many years. Przepiorka asked Nimzovich why he chose to speak to him now,after all those years, and Nimzovich replied, "I always thought you were a member of the Tarrasch school!"
Jul-24-08  Ulhumbrus: 13...h6 disturbs the King side pawns without necessity, and weakens the point g6. Przepiorka wins by attacking this very point by 21 Ne5 at a moment when Black cannot take the N by 21..Nxe5 because with his N on d6, the recapture 22 dxe5 will fork Black's Q and N.
Feb-09-12  RookFile: The only trap white had to avoid was something like 66. Rxe6?? Bxe6 67. Kxe6 d4.

He showed due diligence, knowing that black's pawns are otherwise not going anywhere, and waited until he could win the e6 pawn outright.

Jul-20-12  e4 resigns: <The only trap white had to avoid was something like 66. Rxe6?? Bxe6 67. Kxe6 d4.>

I looked at the following variation:
66.Rxe6 Bxe6 67.Kxe6 d4 68. cxd4 c3 69. Kd7 c2 70. e6 c1=Q 71. e7 and there are no checks for black. Probably a draw, maybe win for white, I don't know.

Jan-28-15  jerseybob: WhoKeres: Funny story, but the outcome of this game has nothing to do with "schools", just a single bad move by black, 8..c4?, locking up the q-side and giving white free reign in the center, starting with 10.e4!
Jan-28-15  JimNorCal: No intention to be a "grammar Nazi".
This made me smile though. "an example of the triumph of folk etymology over origin."

Free rein is the original phrase. But free reign has actually overtaken it in usage.

Jan-28-15  jerseybob: JimNorCal: Thanks for pointing that out, and it's actually quite important. "Free REIGN" is against everything I believe in.
Jan-28-15  JimNorCal: Yes, we Americans need to stand shoulder to shoulder against hereditary rule! :)
Aug-12-18  Granny O Doul: I also read that "Tarrasch school" comment story in some chess book, but I am pretty sure Nimzo was congratulating Przepiorka on beating somebody else, not his own self. It wouldn't be very congruous from Mr. "why must I lose to this idiot?"
