Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-20-04  Knight13: This game is also written and analyzed by Aron Nimzovich in the book "My System" by Nimzovich. One of the analyze from the book are below.

<8. PxQP ....>

If P-B5, then... P-Kt4. A fight would then take place for possession o fht point K4. For example, 8.P-B5, P-Kt4; 9. Q-K2 (tp threaten P-K6 shutting Black in), 9... Q-K3; 10. P-KR3, Kt-R3, follwed by... Kt-B2, or else... Kt-QKt1. In either case Black would not stand badly.

  ray keene: nimzowitsch has been dead for 70 years-i doubt he will care about copyright now-he wd prefer to know that his ideas are still current and being quoted.i am glad to see that young players such as <knight13> are still studying him. btw do you become <knight14> after your next birthday? cheers!
Nov-22-04  Knight13: <ray keene> Maybe I might become Knight14. But I might not kibitz as much as this school year because I want to go to a good hight school and follwed by a good college. :)

This game was played on 18 January 1921, and "Allies" are <Andersson, Oberg, Enstrom>. It was also played in Orebro, not Uppsala.

-Tidskrift for Schack 1922 (Jan/Feb), p.7

In their Nimzowitsch biography, Per Skjoldager and Jorn Erik Nielsen list this issue and page number of the Tidskrift as their source for their publication of this game, but they mistakenly transcribe "Uppsala" instead of "Orebro," which is the city actually listed in that source.

"Spelat i Orebro"

"Played in Orebro"
