Nimzowitsch Wins with 1.e4 Nc6

Aron Nimzowitsch wrote chess books that included humor as he related the game to life. What could be more humorous than winning a Queens Knight Defence with the move 1...Nc6? Nimzowitsch founded the Hyper-Modern School of chess theory. Grandmaster Aron Nimzowitsch settled in Denmark from 1922 onward. Rudolf Spielmann wrote “The Art of Sacrifice”. Here Spielmann picked off the Black h5 pawn. Nimzowitsch turned the tables and picked off the White h4 pawn. The attack continued.
