|Jun-26-13|| ||YoungEd: Beautiful finale!|
|Jun-26-13|| ||RookFile: This is a pretty ridiculous game. 7... b5 has the effect of forcing white to make murderous threats on the kingside.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||erimiro1: No doubt that 7.-b5? (??) was one of Tatakower worst moves ever. But positons such as the Benko gambit style were not known then. I guess they called it "Capablanca variation" because Capablanca was the first to test it against Nimzowitch.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||ChemMac: 25. fXe=N+ Kh6 26. Re6+ Kh5 27. f4 Rg8 28. Bf3+ Rg4 29.h3 OK?|
|Jun-26-13|| ||Moszkowski012273: Yeahhhhhh... He totally shoulda under-promoted (N) to mate with the three minors!|
|Jun-26-13|| ||Nerwal: Tartakower was kind enough to include this brutal beating in his "Bréviaire des Echecs" (and he did not have much good to say about his moves). He wrote that black actually resigned after 25. fxe8=♕+, giving in notes the variation with ♖xh7+.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||paladin at large: Capablanca had praise for all aspects of his friend Tartakower's chess playing, except for one thing: "You lack solidity", he told him.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||Erik Wynn: Interesting game, but I think white extended the game a bit. Isn't 21. Rf4 a faster win than Qe8+?|
|Jun-26-13|| ||Bowen Island: An off hand game in a pub, close to closing time? Hard to imagine there was anything of a serious nature to the setting considering the moves.|

It was played at the Paris city chess championship. Cukierman finished first with 14.5/17. Tartakower, who probably tried his usual risky experiments, took second place.
Let's not forget that in 1930, very little about Queen's Indian, Benko, Benoni and Blumenfeld type of positions was known. Those dynamic positions which are now very familiar to us were not common back then, and bad mistakes often occured. It's harder to be a pioneer.
|Jun-26-13|| ||kevin86: The queen is lost,recovered,and delivers mate.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||chancho: Capablanca: "You lack solidity."
Tartakower: "That is my saving grace."
|Jun-26-13|| ||talisman: guy suffered a tragic end...another chessplayer.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||BattleSquare: what happens if 12.... Bxd5?|
|Jun-26-13|| ||PawnSac: <ZeejDonnelly: Cukier means sugar in Polish.>|
well it was a pretty sweet combination
|Jun-26-13|| ||ZeejDonnelly: <PawnSac> Indeed! Tartakower met his sugar daddy that day.|
|Jun-26-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <sevenseaman: 26. Rxh7 is a little gem of an idea! But Cukierman not bothering to castle due to some arrogance or loss of a tempo is a bit nonchalant.>|
With all those attacking pieces already on hand, castling would have been gilding the lily.
|Jun-28-13|| ||BattleSquare: What's wrong with 12..... Bxd5?|
|Jun-28-13|| ||Nerwal: <What's wrong with 12..... Bxd5?>
It loses by force after 13. ♘f5+. But it's quite complicated and even Tartakower didn't seem to get the line right. He gave (his exclams) : 13. ♘f5+ ♔e6 14. ♗h3!! ♗xe4 15. ♘xd6+! ♔xd6 16. 0-0-0+ ♗d5 17. ♖xd5+! ♔xd5 18. ♖d1+ ♔c4 19. ♖xd8 ♗h6+ 20. e3 ♖xd8 21. ♗f1+ ♔d5 22. ♕d1+ and 22. ♕xd8 winning. What's wrong with this analysis ?|
|Jun-28-13|| ||Shams: <Nerwal> Can Black play 16...Ke7 instead?|
|Jun-28-13|| ||Nerwal: <Can Black play 16...Ke7 instead?>Certainly. After 16. 0-0-0 ♔e7 it's most likely a draw, so 16. 0-0-0 isn't so good.|
|Jul-03-13|| ||BattleSquare: <Nerwal> Thanks. Your analizys is all right !!|
|Jul-03-13|| ||RookFile: Regarding some earlier comments, you only castle because it's the best move, never just to make a play.|
|May-20-18|| ||zanzibar: Hmmm, I have a contemporaneous account ending after 26.Rxh7+.|
