   Nov-19-22 Nimzowitsch vs P S Leonhardt, 1911
kerpa: I'm going through My System - this is Game #16. Nimzowitsch used this game to show that putting the question to a pinning Bishop (ie following up 8. h3 with g4) depended on proper timing, and needed compensation for "disorganizing" the King's pawn protection. 9. g4? because Nxg4 ...
   Oct-09-22 Nimzowitsch vs Vidmar, 1907 (replies)
kerpa: Jeremy Silman uses 12 Ba6 to illustrate blockade - in this case of the weak a6 pawn (Complete Book of Chess Strategy, diagram 172). It's a fine book for newbies like myself.

   Dec-18-21 Schlechter vs W John, 1905
kerpa: This game is beautifully explained with great clarity by Fred Reinfeld in Chess Review March 1943 p. 89 - 91. It is Part Two of Chess Openings Made Easy, in which Reinfeld explains openings and also their relationships to middle games on the basis of pawn structures (he called them ...
   Nov-16-21 R Hart vs B R Watson, 2010
kerpa: GM Michael Roiz cites this game as showing that 9...c6 "cannot be recommended....10.Qh5! is a finesse which puts Black's 9th move out of business." Necessary is 9...Qh4! - "This move may appear artificial but it serves an important purpose in limiting White's activity on the kingside ...
