Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-21-08  I Offer You A Resign: Letting Black take on a5 in the endgame was a nice move. Many players I know would have tried to protect it. Maybe it's a small thing, but it was a good game.
Sep-21-08  Smothered Mate: This should be listed as a Pirc, 150 attack.
Jul-18-10  zdiddy: nimzo notes in his book that the losing move was on move 9, giving up defense of the d6 square. it was in the occupation of this square by the rook on move 28 that the game was won

  GrahamClayton: Nimzowitsch surrenders the two bishops in return for control of the d file, and threats against Black's weak pawns, which eventually fall. 29...fe6 30. Ne6+ would be a nice triple knight fork.

  beatgiant: 18...bxa5 looks like a major weakening. Black should consider leaving it, for example 18...Be7 preparing 19...f5. If White takes the pawn on b6, White will come out a pawn ahead but at a cost of freeing lines for Black's bishop pair.

  beatgiant: Or 18...Rb8 would leave White with better activity, but I'm not sure it's enough for White to be able to win.
