    I hung my queen in the game, but managed to convert things so that I had 5 pawns for the rook. This is one of my first Nimzo-Indian games.

    The title immediately brought to mind the game Kujoth-Fashingbauer:



    First 10 white moves are with pawns!

    That's a really nice site- I added it to my favorites. In my case, I screwed up, and was merely successful making lemonade out of lemons.

    In a way, the error probably helped me, in that it forced me to use the positive parts of my position- my real error was probably that I tried to look for a tactical solution, when my advantages were more positional in nature.

    I wish I could play like this without being forced to do so. It seems I only run fast when I am being chased. ๐Ÿ˜•
