Hi all

I recommend the following annotation to be checked out and feedback given to the game annotator who is: jim42078, Lord Ptarmigan

Game quotation:

Lack of development leading to a quick end

Game introduction:

Trying to win material at the cost of development in the opening is often a hazardous business. Here Nimzowitsch swiftly punishes such play with a violent attack down the centre of the board. Analysis combines original notes with those of Nimzowitsch himself, from his book "My system".

Game conclusions:

Development is more important than a pawn in the opening.
