Kibitzer's Corner
May-18-03  muayad ali: An elegant middegame plan by Tarrasch,A masterly performance finishing.
Oct-30-05  Petrocephalon: Agreed. The manoeuvering of the queen, and especially of the bishop from b3 to h3, are vintage Tarrasch. I don't get 54.Bg2 though. Anybody?
Oct-30-05  aw1988: Yeah, no clue.
Aug-11-07  sanyas: Doesn't simply 34...♖xa1 undo all of White's good work?
Nov-15-07  Dr. Siggy: <sanyas>: Fred Reinfeld, "Tarrasch's Best Games of Chess", London 1947, page 123: - "Had Teichmann accepted the temporary Pawn sacrifice the following continuation would have been likely: 34... Rxa1 35. Rxa1 Rxa1 36. Qxa1 Qxb5 37. Ba4! Qe2 38. Nf1 Nf6 (38... b5 39. Qd1! Qc4 40. Qb3! Qe2 41. Qc2! Qxb3 41. Bxb3, regaining the Pawn with a favourable ending) 39. Qc3 Qa2 40. Qxc7 Qxa4 41. Qxd8 Qxb4 42. Bxb6 Ne8 43.Kh2 f6 44. Ne3 and White still has the advantage."
Apr-15-08  FICSwoodpusher: The Bishop move to h3 reminds me of the theme that in such positions one must improve the worst positioned piece. Also the other theme that comes up is creating two weaknesses in the enemy position.

  Honza Cervenka: <I don't get 54.Bg2 though. Anybody?> Well, maybe that white, who apparently planned to leave a-file with his Queen, wanted just to eliminate eventual Queen check there, if black would occupy it. Such intrusion of black Queen with check can be dangerous.
Feb-28-14  LIFE Master AJ: Soltis, in his book: "The 100 Best," says that this might be Tarrasch's finest game.
Feb-28-14  LIFE Master AJ: Tarrasch might deserve around a dozen exclaims for his play here.
