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.
Jun-16-18  WorstPlayerEver: 22. Rxf7 Kxf7 23. Rc1 with advantage for White.

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?

Jun-16-18  WorstPlayerEver: <CHC>

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

Jun-16-18  WorstPlayerEver: PS speaking of SF:

0.74 (22 ply) 16. Qa4 Nxb2 17. Qxa6 Bxc3 18. Qa3 Bg7 19. Rab1 Qf6 20. Rfc1 d5 21. Rxc7 Rf7 22. Rxf7 Kxf7

12 SF moves (16. Qa3-21... Rxf7) from the past.

  plang: 8 d5 was a new but not a very effective move; 8 Be2 would have bee logical. Black's 13..b6?! and 14..Ba6 underestimated White's 15 f4 which gave him active play. 27 Be1 covering d2 as well as activating the bishop was recommended by Nezmetdinov. White was in trouble after 28 Re4?; 28 R4c2..Rfd7 29 Rxd2..Rxd2 30 Be1 looks OK for White. The game actually went on until move 61; this is an incomplete score.
