Essential Strategic Concepts, Part 2 - Strongpoint! by IM Bill Paschall
Nimzovich gives a master class, highlighting some of his most beloved concepts. In this game we see ideas such as the strong point, blockade and centralization. Black violated one of Nimzo's most cherished principles, attacking the head of white's pawn chain, or strong point at e5. The black king was never entirely safe in this game due to the powerful central positions held by the white knights. Black's bishops could never reach their full potential against the master of blockade.
