In this game black played by Elisabeth Paehtz is taking a lot of strategic risk int the opening by playing c5 and putting early developped knight to a5. Engine shows big advatage for white pieces. At some point black plays really courageuosly pushing g5 and f5, which appears to give black surprisingly better chances. Game eventually is decided in a rook and knight endgame.

The Nimzowitsch Defence is a somewhat unusual chess opening characterised by the moves:
1. e4 Nc6
This opening is an example of a hypermodern opening in which Black invites White to occupy the centre of the board at an early stage with pawns. Black’s intent is to block or otherwise restrain White’s central pawns and, if allowed to do so by inaccurate play by White, eventually undermine the White pawn centre by well-timed pawn advances of his own or by attacking the white pieces defending the centre. World Champion Garry Kasparov and Grandmaster Raymond Keene wrote that it “has never been fully accepted as a dependable opening. Nevertheless it is sound and offers the maverick spirit a great deal of foreign territory to explore.”
Blitz chess (also known as speed or fast chess) is a type of chess in which each player is given less time to consider their moves than normal tournament time controls allow. Openings, tactics and strategy are same.
