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:

Defence as a prelude to Attack

Game introduction:

Another game taken from the pages of "My system", with some (hopefully) fresh ideas about what is a wonderfully-played game by Nimzowitsch from start to finish. First he sets about a blockade that gives White no freedom of movement and nowhere to play, and then with all the time in the world he develops a winning attack.

Game conclusions:

Attacks are always so much easier when your opponent has nothing he can do to distract you from your set-up.
