  Honza Cervenka:, this is a little bit shorter version of Tarrasch vs Maroczy, 1905 with different order of moves 9 and 10.

  zydeco: Defense beats attack. 21.Re7?! looks more dangerous than it is.

This game turned out to be critical for first place in the tournament.

Maroczy makes things complicated for himself with the mysterious 43.....Re3. 43....Rxg3+ 44.Kh7 b2 looks like an easy win.

  Honza Cervenka: 24.c4 is just a loss of time. 24.Re1 looks better.

  zydeco: <Honza Cervenka> I think Tarrasch was afraid of 24.Re1 Qd5 and queens come off.
