Dec-29-04  MidnightDuffer: The Orangutang; Polish Opening; Tartakower Gambit ...
May-30-06  ChessPieceFace: i like 27.d6. i'm sure i would have gotten greedy and gone right for the back rank (27.Qa8+ or 27.Qb8+).

there's really quite a few variations of moves after this...perhaps someone could help me out with why that's not a good idea?

Sep-05-06  lopium: ChessPieceFace, I think that both of the moves you suggested allow Kf7 and the white Queen is badly placed since it has no check to give nor a good place where to go. Qh8, Nh5 and I think black is O.K.
Jun-03-07  Regicidal: An admirable defense by Black. B4 has been a La Brea Tar Pit for White, but Tartakower used it to great effect on the Queen side.
Jun-03-07  ounos: I like Black's play very much in moves 11 through 19. Tartakower was too cunning though.
Aug-25-08  Helios727: Pretty impressive to actually beat a strong player like Reti with it.

  Fusilli: After 25...Rf6 white looks cramped and it looks like black has compensation for the pawn, but 26.Qxa7 and 27.d6! (or maybe d6!!) pretty much seal the result. Impressive.
Dec-16-13  Captain Hindsight: Better would have been <27... Rxd6 28.Qb8+ Kh7 29.Qxc7 Ne6 30.Qb8 Qf4 > and there's still some work to do.
