The Most Instructive Master Games Ever Played: Game 1

I'm making my own internet series, and I'll see how far It can go. This next game is a flawless example of basic strategic elements, as well as tactical. Nimzovich wins this game by getting 3 different mates going at the same time!

An excellent idea! Analyzing games is supposedly a good way to improve and it's great you're sharing these with others. I'm curious... how did you select the games? At first I thought they might be from "The Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever Played" or "Most Instructive Games of the Young Grandmasters" but I didn't see these games among those collections.

Ah, The first one is Game 1 of My System, and most of the comments are nimzo's. The second game I found in a database. I finally got chessbase light working on my laptop, so I looked for free downloadable PGN databases, and I have one for morphy, Anderssen, Spassky, Kamsky, Two for fischer, etc. and a few games by opening (Dragon, Spanish, etc.)

I got about 10000-ish games. I just went through a few until I found something good!
