Jun-12-06  suenteus po 147: 32.Qe4 is a devastating final move when you realize that black's only reply that prevents mate, stops the passed pawn's progress, and defends the rook (32...Qe7) leads to a forced mate! Observe: 32...Qe7 33.Qa8+ Kc7 34.Qb7+ and now wherever the king goes it's mate: 34...Kd6 35.Qc6# or 34...Kd8 35.Qb8#. Great play and vision of the board by Tartakower.
Nov-07-06  mack: 17.d4 is a lovely exchange sac for long term - nay, decisive - pressure.
Nov-07-06  RookFile: Nonsense. There were no exchange sacs in human history before Gary Kasparov.
Feb-12-07  suenteus po 147: <mack> Do you think that Tartakower foresaw the knight outpost on d6 when he sacked the exchange with 17.d4?
