Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-24-05  ksadler: Another wonderful game by Tarrasch! Great tension, poisoned pieces, and a swift tactical finish. A good game for study, in my opinion. It's somewhat obvious, but I'll mention it anyway: if 34. .. fxg6 then 35. f7+! with an immediate checkmate or promotion.
Jun-20-06  GeauxCool: Tarrasch gives black problems, he's restricted and can't develop normally. On move 17, Marco must sacrifice a pawn to free himself.-Fine
Jul-09-06  Petrocephalon: A correction has been submitted. (Note you can do this via the link "suggest your correction" under the Kibitz window).

An interesting comment by Reinfeld to 13.Nf3:
"This is the kind of move that can be made only by a tyro or a great master. Tarrasch deliberately refrains from obtaining two Bishops and retreats the Knight with a loss of several tempi. But what is really important is the weakening of Black's position (..P-KR3) and the cramping effect of the coming P-KB5"

Tarrasch uses his pawns to great effect to smother Marco's position.

Feb-02-13  backrank: < Anastasius: 24.Rac1: In order to avoid the exchange of rooks makes less sense than Rae1. I think 24.Rae1 was played.>

For the final combination too it's important that the rook is placed on e1 to prevent the black king from escaping.

Reinfeld, Réti and Euwe all give 24 Rae1.

  zanzibar: Here <CB>,<NIC> and <365> all get it wrong... with 24.Rac1, whereas <CG> now is correct with 24.Rae1 is given in TB G-265 p239/267.
