Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-22-10  Catfriend: A little pretty Tarrasch gem, without any kibitzing. The game starts in a very modern way, until Black exchanges on d5, giving up the fight for the center. Naturally, in several moves, after 14.c4, he's bound and under pressure. By 20.Bg4, offering the piece exchange for white squares control, Black probably felt strangled and doomed, forcing him to lash out in despair: 20..g5. Note the elegant, gradual way in which Tarrasch enhances his pieces and attack - never a violent move, never a long jump! A square at a time: 21.Bg4, 22.Be6, 23.Bd4, 24.Rc3, 25.Rf5, 26.Bd5, 27.c5 - all natural moves, while the opponent flounders around, "flapping his wings" and worrying.

Then, finally, comes the lethal forced attack - as if it's the most obvious and easy thing in the world! Every single piece is involved, every positional conquest is used.

An excellent game, though a little known one.

  Breunor: Really beautiful game! Wonderful positional game, and then a great tactical shot with 28 R x c5
Sep-15-17  SChesshevsky: Interesting that wikipedia says the Maroczy Bind first came about around 1900.

But 14. c4 looks like it effectively sets up the bind. From now on I'm calling it the Tarrasch Bind!
