Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-14-05  paladin at large: <Fine play early by Tartakower with queen threats on the queenside and then the penetration by the black knight to win a pawn. He is even more impressive in the endgame from move 44 on, having the more active king and rook, and gradually eliminating all the white pawns.

Interestingly, Tartakower matched up well against Keres, one of the titans of the century, and only lost to Keres when he was quite old, shortly before his death.

Apr-14-05  Shams: white should have played 23.Rxd5 and angled for queenside pawn expansion.
