Aug-08-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Rubinstein got absolutely pin(t)-overdosed.
Jun-27-09  whiteshark: Rubinstein's play changed beyond recognition.

<12.Rad1> would have been a a good move. <19.Bxf6?> was already the decisive mistake.

Mar-13-12  bystander: <autoreperaturwerkbau> Nimzowitch uses this game in My Sytem to illustrate pins! And yes <whiteshark> the game is not so interesting and I think too already lost after 19 Bf6x? After move 19 Nimzowitch still shows some "pinning and "unpinning" in a game which is won. Some variations. Instead of 10)...a5 first develop the queenside? 10)..Rb8 11) Qd2 Qa5 12) Rfd1 Rfd8. An alternative for 13) Nc2: 13) Nd5 Nd5x 14)Bg7x Kg7x 15)cd5x Nd4 looks equal to me. And not 19) Bf6x? but simple 19) a3 Nc6 20) Qd3 Bg7 21) Nd5 Nd5x 22) cd5x Ne5
Apr-22-17  sam94: Could anyone explain-why 20.Kf2 was played.. seems to me as turning point.Thnx in advance..
Apr-22-17  Retireborn: <sam94> White is worried about the pin (by the bishop on h6) on his Ne3 and he wants to play f4 to break it, but to do that he has to move his king out of the line of the Qb7.

The real turning point was 19.Bxf6? opening up the e-file for Black, as the previous kibitzers pointed out.

May-03-17  sam94: <Retireborn> Thank you for the explaination.
May-11-17  Ulhumbrus: Nimzovich has given two exclamation marks to the move 18...Rfe8. This suggests that the pair of moves 17...a4 and 18...Rfe8 can be considered an improvement on 17...Rfe8 at once.
