Day 22 : Beginning Knight Flight
I played through Mr Nezh The Game That Changed Me during my work lunch break. A great game! No subtlety here .The barbarians are camped out at the gates of Rome and there going to be in city in the morning.
I especially like how Nezh marchs a wall of pawns in front of his castled king and continues to batter the wall down until mate is achieved.
I can see why Mr Nezh feels so passionate about his play. Until reading Mr Nezh webblog I didn't know of Nezhmetdinov. Thanks Mr Nezh!
Here is another nice tactical game of Nezh a smothered mate.
