  Honza Cervenka: If 18...Bxf1 19.Bxf1 Bxc5, then 20.Ba6+ Kb8 21.Rd7 and white easily wins, for example 21...Bb6 22.Rxf7 g6 23.e5 h5 24.e6 Re8 25.Rd7 threatening 26.e7 and 27.Rd8+.
May-12-07  actionhero56: nimzo plays like a patzer in this game
Feb-01-12  RookFile: Don't think 16... c5 was the right approach. Bringing one of the rooks into the game seems indicated.
Sep-27-21  tinnderbox: Well, Bb5 isn't great, and Bc3 is a bad move in a poor position. Nimzowitsch was yet far from the power he would be, and in this tournament he played well below par. Leussen was a pretty decent player and on chances like these he would certainly pounce.
