Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-15-08  withingrace: around move 28, it became fairly obvious what the end would look like. the queenside pawns are nearly unopposed.
Mar-23-10  birthtimes: After White's inaccuracy on move 28, Nezhmetdinov takes the initiative by trading queens, and after White's inability to find a possible drawing move on move 38, Super Nezh finishes the rest of the game off with some solid endgame technique.
Jul-06-12  Castleinthesky: A nice endgame which demonstrates that the rook must be behind the pawn.

What did you do, spend the whole night looking for suboptimal moves in Nezhmetdinov's games using StockFish just because he was praised yesterday? Are you a professional envyist? Does it pay well?

Took two hours for the first 10 Nezh games. I didn't know SF was praised. Tell me more about it.
