Mar-01-07  percyblakeney: Paulsen's play in this game against tournament winner Tarrasch feels very modern for a once upon a time Morphy opponent. Breslau 1889 was apparently his final tournament, and the often underestimated Paulsen shared fourth (with among others Gunsberg). He died two years later, 58 years old.
Mar-01-07  paul1959: Maybe the opening looks modern but the following play does not. White kindly blocks the queenside with 35 b5(Why?) and then Black returns the favor with 36 ... Nxc6 and 47,,, g4. After 36 ...Ng6 the N at c6 is as bad as the Bc7 and Black can think of mounting something on the K side. White would be reduced to wait for the attack.
