Apr-05-04  Whitehat1963: Very effectively played by Chajes!
Feb-18-08  rosenthal: why didn't tartakower play 35......Kf7? to protect the f pawn?
Feb-18-08  sneaky pete: 35... Kf7 36.Qh7+ Kf8 37.Bh6+ Ke8 38.Qg8+ Ke7 39.Qe6# or 36... Ke8 37.Qg8+ Ke7 38.Qe6+ Kf8 39.Bh6#.
Feb-18-08  Karpova: <rosenthal: why didn't tartakower play 35......Kf7? to protect the f pawn?>

35...Kf7 36.Qh7+ Ke8 (<36...Kf8 37.Bh6+ Ke8 38.Qg8+ Ke7 39.Qe6#>) 37.Qg8+ Ke7 38.Qe6+ Kf8 39.Bh6+ Rg7 40.e5 (<e.g. 41...c1=Q 41.Rxc1 Rxc1 42.exf6>)

Tartakower's move at least keeps away the queen for some time.

39...c1=Q appears to have been a mistake ruining Black's position. 39...Qc4 might have been preferable.

Feb-18-08  sneaky pete: So in my second line after 39.Bh6# I overlooked 39... Rg7 - that must be the Tarka<tower> defence the heading speaks of. Now after 40.e5 fxe5 how does white continue?

35...Kf7 36.Qh7+ Ke8 37.Qg8+ Ke7 38.Qe6+ Kf8 39.Bh6+ Rg7 40.e5 fxe5 41.Rf1 (41...f4 42.Bxf4)

After 41.Rf1

Feb-18-08  sneaky pete: <Karpova> Very nice, thank you. Of course I realised there had to be a win and I did look at 41.Rf1 f4, but didn't bother with the unpinning retreat 42.Bxf4 .. (with the eventual further retreat .. c1=Q 43.Bxc1+ ..) - much to subtle for my <allora!> attacking style.
Mar-03-08  rosenthal: thanks, sneaky pete & karpova. i will check your analysis out!
