Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-12-05  ksadler: An extremely effective and inventive queen sacrifice by Tarrasch finishes this game quite nicely.

  keypusher: I think Tarrasch was inspired by this game.

Tarrasch vs K Walbrodt, 1895

Jun-25-18  Marcelo Bruno: <keypusher> You are right, the only exception is that Tarrasch's opponent did not pin his Queen on a Bishop's diagonal.

  jnpope: Does anyone know the source of the claim that Tarrasch won a brilliancy prize for Popiel-Tarrasch. I have found no evidence of such a prize being offered during the tournament. It doesn't show up in the Deutsche Schachzeitung, British Chess Magazine or any newspaper source I have access to for 1896. Nor could I find it being belatedly awarded in 1897. And it is not mentioned in Maroczy's book of the tournament. Tarrasch did win the special prize offered for having the best score against the prize winners, but that's the only prize I've found him winning from this event.
