Oct-26-07  Jesspatrick: This game is a perfect example of "equal is not necessarily drawish".
Jan-16-10  elohah: What I saw:

This kid did not have JACK on Asa
after 38 moves. He literally did not
have doodly -squat!.

Nov-05-14  jerseybob: elohah: Sorry, can't agree with that; I'd definitely take black here. The pawn e5 looks impressive, but is actually a hindrance, shielding e6 for movement by the black pieces.

  louispaulsen88888888: I wonder which side Nimzovich would prefer after 38 moves. The e5 pawns cramps black.it is nicely overprotected, yet black is blockading it well,too!
