  Richard Taylor: <Eric> This is an interesting game - and a good example of how to study openings - I play the Tarrasch lately - but I couldn't follow your analyiss - could it be posted as a separate game or games - I mean that large analysis?
Oct-05-07  The Chess Express: 13. h4 f6! 14. exf6 gxf6 looks pretty good for black. Also 16. ... f6 instead of b5? is a clear improvement. Perhaps white could try 13. Ne2. That way the knight is freed without having to spend time playing a3.
Jan-23-08  The Chess Express: Another interesting line is 10. Nb5 Qxa2 11. Rd1 (Rc1) Rb8 12. Nc7+ Kd8 13. Nb5 unlear

  GrahamClayton: Interesting pawn sacrifice on move 8 - you associate 8...♕b2 with the Najdorf variation of the Sicilian, and not with the Steinitz variation of the French!
