  Sneaky: If instead of 29. Nf3 what about trying to save the knight with 29. Rd1?

Then I believe a good move would be 29. ...Qd2 and everything is hanging.

Sep-11-05  ughaibu: Amazing that after 12.g4 neither player seems to think f5 is strong for white.
Sep-11-05  PizzatheHut: <ughaibu><Amazing that after 12.g4 neither player seems to think f5 is strong for white> I agree, that seems to be the most natural move on the board.
Sep-11-05  aw1988: <ughaibu> You know what, I'm inclined to agree. I've barely looked at the position and I don't see a White army which can inflict much concern. At least not in an immediate thrust forward.
Sep-11-05  aw1988: I mean I'm inclined to agree with the players. Tarrasch was no slouch even in 1914, and I'm sure he considered it. Spielmann was a dandy of attack, and I'm sure he saw it. I'm not just siding with the players, I happen to have my own opinion about it.
Sep-14-08  sneaky pete: If 29.Re1 Qc5 wins the other knight. Not 29... Qd2? 30.Nf3 .. etc.
