My System by Aron Nimzovich:Illustrative Games

Hello chess fans of the great Nimzovich.  First, let me thank my good chess friend Leenhorn for loaning me the book "My System by Aron Nimzovich".  It has been very interesting and has inspired me to follow more of the Nimzo openings and defences.   As I am not very good at reading chess algebra and following the moves in my head, especially the way the great Nimzovich wrote (its very interesting, you should check it out) so here I am going to take his book and put it on a chess board for everyone to follow along.  In doing so, I hope to give everyone an opportunity to learn some good chess stuff from one of the greatest chess minds and learn a bit more my own self.  Enjoy!

    I got this from an old book a friend of mine gave me.  Not really sure about copyright infringement but some analysis are his words directly quoted and some are my own.  If you look for the book "My System", you will see these games in the back of the book.

    Did you get all his annotations? I have been meaning to do something like this, but maybe it viopates copyright. But itd be great to do this as a series of posts.
