Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-23-06  Whitehat1963: Really clever execution from Vidmar all the way through. Nimzo sees a mirage in the end game that he valiantly tries to turn into a win, but Vidmar counters patiently to seal the deal.
Nov-15-07  paladin at large: <Whitehat1963> Yes, a very entertaining game. I love moves 28-36; Nimzowitsch has gained three pawns but is in a heap of trouble. If I am not mistaken, the relatively unpretentious Vidmar said about his matches with Nimzowitsch: "We never seem to understand each other's play."

From the tournament book: <36...Qd6??> (der entscheidende Fehler, der die bisher ausgezeichnet geführte Partie kostet. Mit <36...Qe5! 37.N2f3 Qd6! 38.dxe6 fxe6 39.Ng5 Re8!>

sollte Schwarz seinen Vorteil festhalten.) <37.Ne4!!> (damit wendet der jugoslawische Vorkämpfer das Blatt zu seinen Gunsten) ...

Aug-27-09  BISHOP TAL: In chess praxis after move 23 black obtained a slightly superior game,after move 26, whites hangin pawns dont inspire confidence no comment on anything after that including who won lol. propylaxis and the art of manoevering on inner lines are the main topics.
Feb-09-12  RookFile: I think it's better to be ahead an extra knight and rook, myself. That's probably one of the reasons why Milan Vidmar beat Aron Nimzowitsch 4 to 2, with 8 draws.
