Jun-06-05  ksadler: A nice example by Tarrasch in the endgame of how to play pawns vs. a Knight. Even his play with his Knight before he traded it off was nice to see. This game is probably an example of why the h4 and O-O-O is more often seen on the White side of the Dragon than on the QGD.

  NM JRousselle: This could have been a good example of Marshall's positional skills had he not erred with 23 Rc1 (unprotecting the knight). Tarrasch immediately pounced with e5! securing the advantage.

Before the error at move 23, Marshall had a nice space advantage. The silicon beast says he is better by about a pawn.
