  keypusher: One of the featured games in My System. I had forgotten about it. From a seemingly cramped position Nimzowitsch gradually takes over the whole board. Looking at it now, it is white's misplaced rooks that leave him defenseless when Nimzo finally opens up the center.
Jan-01-10  muwatalli: when i first looked at this game i thought that white still had 12. exf6 for example 12. exf6 bxe2 13 fxe7 qe8 14 bxe2 and white is better. what i did not see quickly was 12 exf6 Bxf6 and black is fine, with white having no way to win a piece due to 13 Bxf6 Bxe2 and black is better.

some interesting commentary/an interesting variation nimzowitsch gave in "my system" is after 33 Qc1 <I had expected here (at last!) the sacrifice at g6 and had in anticipation prepared a real problem in reply namely 33. Bxg6 h4! 34 rg4 fxg6 35 rxg6 Qf5 36 rxg7 Qe4+ 37 Qg2(forced) Rd1+ 38 Ng1, and now to the point 38. h3 Qxe4 Nxe4 threatening mate at f2.>

  plang: 8 Rc1 had been played in Jacobsen-Nimzovich Copenhagen 1923 (Black won); 8 Bd3 was new. White built up a promising initiative but starting with 24 Ne2?! he seems to have trouble coming up with a constructive plan.

Nimzovich's opening is not that strong but the manner with which he defends his kingside followed by slowly taking over the initiative is quite impressive.
