Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-24-05  fred lennox: Tartakower adroitly exploting the backward e3 pawn. After move 21 the position looks almost at a standstill with none of the enemy pawns making contact. 22.Rxe3 is an unexpected punch. It may not pass for a real exchange since black earned two pawns from it. It's real beauty is the imbalance it creates, paving for an intense, intricate attack typical of the master.
Nov-24-05  paladin at large: <fred lennox> Yes, Tartakower wins rather easily after making the break, taking advantage of the long range power of the bishops and queen going after the weak white kingside.
Nov-24-05  CapablancaFan: <fred lennox> The sacrafice exchange can indeed be a powerful weapon. Here, Tartakower exploits the weakness of the g7 diagnol to good effect. The risk of this exchange is not very high though because as compensation of the exchange Tartakower opens up a dangerous diagnol which his dark squared bishop can operate from and a severley exposed king. Basically after move 28 d4+! Khan's game is lost. Side Note: 28...d4 is a discovered check, but chessgames didn't mark it d4+ just d4. I know, I know big deal right? I agree, I guess I'm just detailed that way.
Nov-25-05  fred lennox: <CapablancaFan> Not my attitude at all. Thanks for that.

  OhioChessFan: a3 followed up by b3 seems odd. Why not go ahead and move the pawn to b4? I see no point to a3 otherwise.
