The Pride of the Family

This position arose in a game between Aron Nimzowitsch and Semion Alapin. When the game took place and where has not been established (see "Nimzowitsch v Alapin" by Edward Winter [updated 1 January 2014]). Suggested dates have ranged from 1911 to 1914.

White to move

Nimzowitsch played the best move from this position and won a nice miniature.
