Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-05-04  Halfpricemidge: If 47. Bd1 Bd3 48. Kd2 Ke4!
Aug-12-05  Pawn Ambush: Nice play by Colle,especially 7...Ne4 and 8...Nc6 followed by 9...e5.
Mar-09-11  caissafan1963: After 7.Ne4, White handed the initiative over to Black with 8.Qd3. Better was 8.Qxc7 when Black has nothing better than 8. ... Nc6, 9.f3 (9.Nf3 Bd7 ) Nd6, 10.Bd2 Nc4, 11.e4 Qxd4, 12.Bxc4 Qxc4=). This is probably why 6.a3 is rarely seen by White in the Nimzo-Classical.
Apr-15-12  Karpova: The game score is incorrect. Akiva played 17.Rxc4 and though this change of move order does not make a difference here, 17.Bxc4 actually allows 17...Bxg2 18.Rg1 Be4 and 19.Rxg7 is not possible due to 19...Bg6.

Euwe suggests 18.f3 followed by Be2 instead of Akiva's 18.Rc3.

Donaldson and Minev give 14.Rc1 a question mark.
