Mar-27-11  braimondi: Jako was outplayed here...
Apr-02-11  Whitehat1963: Wow! Definitely one for my collection.
Apr-06-11  DanielBryant: Another sobering reminder of what separates the masters from the rest of us. As Black, I would have been bogged down trying to keep White off the c file instead of looking for what play I had on the kingside.
Apr-06-11  goldenbear: I need to start a collection called "Why 4.Qc2 is a stupid response to the Nimzo". Seriously, I don't know what the statistics say, but it seems like nobody wins with the Classical Nimzo anymore.
Apr-06-11  sevenseaman: Good, entertaining games are not hard to come by; only we do not keep our antennae open.

  scutigera: <goldenbear> Classical Nimzo : General (ECO E32) is +80-56=96 in database games played in 2020 or later. If the losses stand out more, maybe it's because it takes exceptional play, one way or the other, to beat it.
