Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-29-04  refutor: 39.Bxf5! a nice tactic
Apr-21-05  aw1988: Sorry, but what is the point behind Bxf5?
Apr-21-05  Milo: Wins a pawn thanks to 39...gxf5 40.Rh6+
Apr-21-05  Milo: What the hell am i saying...
Apr-21-05  samvega: No, you're right Milo. White then wins a second pawn for the piece.
Apr-21-05  samvega: (and exchanges rooks, after which the g pawn can't be stopped)
Apr-21-05  aw1988: And you're saying there's no way black can win?
Apr-21-05  aw1988: The g-pawn can be captured with the h-pawn.
Apr-21-05  Milo: No, that works, maybe 40...Kd7 41.Rxh7+ Kc8 42.Rxb7 Kxb7 and 43.Ke5, I think.
Apr-21-05  aw1988: Ah, I overlooked the simple Ke5. Nice sac!
Apr-21-05  Milo: 43.g6 might win, for all I know, but it looks hard. Threw me too for a while.
Jun-16-12  Howard: A recent column on the ChessCafe website, studies a few of Tartakower's better-known endgames....including this one.
Jun-23-14  King.Arthur.Brazil: Let's see: after 39... gxf5 40.Rh6+ Kc7 41.Rxh7+ Kc8 42. Rxc7 Kxc7 43.Ke5 Nd7+ 44.Kxf5 Nf8 (or any) 45.g6 and win! Beautiful Tartakower combination!
