Ne5 Nxe5 16. dxe5 Kh8 17. a4 $2 {At first sight White's position looks quite good. He has the better Bishop, and is threatening to take the initiative on the Queenside with Pa5. The sequel will show that he is being too optimistic} ( 17. g3 Rg8 18. Kh2) 17... Rg8 18. Qd2 gxf4 $1 19. Rxf4 (19. exf4 Qh4 20. Kh1 Rxg2 21. Kxg2 Rg8+ $19) 19... Qg5 20. Bf1 Qg3 {Beginning to maneuver.} 21. Kh1 (21. -- Qxh3) 21... Qg7 $1 22. Qd4 Ba6 {Dashing White's only hope, for he must now give up his good Bishop for Black's bad one} 23. Rf2 Qg3 24. Rc2 Bxf1 25. Rxf1 Rac8 {All the time Black operates with threats} 26. b3 Rc7 27. Re2 Rcg7 28. Rf4 Rc7 29. Rc2 Rcg7 30. Re2 {In the process of maneuvering, it frequently happens that moves, even whole sequences, are repeated. In the present case the game has not reached an impasse, as one might think. Black's primary aim is to gain time, which was probably running short on his clock} 30... Rg6 $1 31. Qb4 (31. -- Rh6 32. -- Rxh3+) (31. Qd1 Rh6 $22 32. Rf1 (32. Qf1 Qg7) (32. b4 Qg7 33.

Rg6 34. Qd2 Rg3 $1 {At last Black occupies the g3 support point, which in the game has functioned as the "Nimzowitschian" pivot square} 35. Qe1 (35. Kg1 d4 36. exd4 e3 37. Qc3 Rh3 38.
