  Honza Cervenka: Black had to be quite happy with draw here. 6...Qc7 was not successful attempt to avoid main lines of Semi-Slav Defense and he got early in the game into serious troubles. To his fortune Tarrasch missed several opportunities to achieve decisive advantage and in the end he simply let him slip off the hook. 27.Rf1 with intention 28.f5 would be still quite unpleasant for black to face.

11.Qc2 could have been more effective way to exploit the position of black Queen on c7, with idea 11...a6 12.dxe5 Nxe5 13.Nxe5 Qxe5 14.Nxb5!

Another missed chance to get huge advantage was 14.Nxf6+ Bxf6 15.axb5 axb5 (15...cxb5 16.Bf5 Qd6 17.Bb4! or 16...Qd8 17.Ba5! is much worse for black) 16.Bb4 Qd8 (with idea Be7 and 0-0) 17.Bd6 Be7 (what else?) 18.Bxe5 and white has a sound extra Pawn in better position.

Aug-13-19  Retireborn: <Honza> I suppose Treybal was expecting 5.Bg5; perhaps neither of them knew much about the Meran in 1922.

I see that Siegbert had a poor record against Treybal, never managing to defeat him. A bete noir.

  Honza Cervenka: <Retireborn> Of course, Meran was then rare thing but 6...Bd6 was quite common and playable continuation since 1890s, when it was introduced into practice by Chigorin.
Aug-13-19  Straclonoor: <I see that Siegbert had a poor record against Treybal, never managing to defeat him>

Tarrasch was past of his prime, when he played with Treybal.

  perfidious: Treybal was no youngster himself in their encounters, being in his mid-thirties at their first meeting.
