  Ron: Seeing the name of Tarrasch on the recent kibitzing list caught my attention--one of the first chess books I read was his _The Game of Chess_--Tarrasch is a great teacher. If White plays Bxf5 then Black has a forced mate in four moves: Bxf5 Qe6+
Rf5 Qxf5+
Bg4 Qh7+
Bh5 Qh5++

The longest way for White to delay mate seems to start with Qxe2 where Black mates in 7 according to computer analysis. Seems that Tarrasch was correct in resigning.

Nov-20-05  MarkN: Thanks, but one thing: Why would white play Rf5? Wouldnt it be better to move the bishop?
Nov-20-05  who: After 44.Bxh5 Qe6+ 45.g4 (45.Bg4 Qh6+ 46.Bh5 Qxh5#) Qe3+ 46.Rf3 Qxf3#
Nov-20-05  who: And don't forget the threat of 44...g4+ 45.Kh4 Rxh2#
