Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-02-03  Kenkaku: The debut of the French Tarrasch. Black tries to activite his constricted pieces while Tarrasch aims all his forces at black's kingside. After 11...f5 in a desperate attempt to activate the knight, black is finished.
Dec-28-05  syracrophy: There's no defense against the crushing: 18.Qh8++ and 18.Nxe7++
Jan-21-06  DeepBlade: In this game the 2 Knights gallop into the base of the castled King!
Feb-27-07  schnarre: A very inpressive debut of the French Tarrasch! The variation at its finest too!
Jun-23-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 13...g6 is a move of a desperate man.
Apr-16-14  TomHaegin: This is one of the games in Chernev's book "Logical Chess Move by Move".
Apr-16-14  RookFile: Maybe black should not have castled so quickly.
Mar-05-17  ColeTrane: ....think about the future....
Mar-09-19  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: Howdy,
Looks to me to be a case of "QUEEN ASSAULT" on a 0-0 KING! That and BOTH a BISHOP SACRIFICE and AN En-Passant Capture in THE SAME GAME! All in 17 Moves! WOW That's "Jam Packed"

p.s. Quite Nice to see the En-Passant Capture here! You don't see it often. When you do, it's hardly commented on if at all. Youngsters sometimes have some Difficulty with this concept. Perhaps even some Adults too!
