  Honza Cervenka: Delay of development and Pawn grabbing were punished quite quickly in this game.
Dec-20-08  YoungEd: Thank you, <Honza Cervenka>, for this collection. I'm enjoying it. You're right about this game. A sparkling mate at the end!
Oct-01-11  Cemoblanca: 8...Qb6?! [8...e6!]

9...Qxb2? [9...e6! ;0) or 9...Nb4!? 10.Nc3 Nxc3 11.cxd3]

10...Nxd4? and black is already lost here. [It was better to correct the last mistake immediately and to retreat the lady from "The shooting line", e.g. 10...Qb6!? 11.Rab1 Qc7, but after that 12.Bf4! looks strong 12...Qd7!? to keep an eye on f5, etc.]

11.Qf4! and for this reason 10...Nxd4 was a big mistake!

11...Ne6?? and after this move follows the "Death Penalty". ;0) [11...Nc6 was not much better, because of 12.Qc7! Rb8 13.Bxa7!, etc.]

12.Qa4+! The 1st "match ball".

12...Nd7 Successfully defended! ;0)

16.Rxc7 The 2nd...

16...Rd8 17.Qxd7! The alarm bell rings, having a shower, getting dressed, blowing-dry the hair and then off to Mama for lunch! :D

May-12-12  andyatchess: Great example of how to lure the queen in to a useless position
Dec-22-15  yureesystem: Tarrasch is one my favorite player, his play is simply extraordinary.
Jul-01-17  sudoplatov: "Bringing in the Scheve."
