Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-28-09  Max Lange: Wow, that move 30. Bxf7 was slick boy! The Last Knight of the King's Gambit scores one against Dr. Tarrasch.
Mar-23-16  fispok: Bold attack, the king is name of the game here.

  pittpanther: If black plays 30....Rxf7 is there a clear win for white?
Jan-07-21  Trt32: What if Black plays 28....Qxe5.
Does that not bring Black in big advantage?

On 28...Qxe5 White has <29. Rxg6+> because the f-pawn is pinned, and after 28...Qxe5 29. Rxg6+ Kh7 30. d4 Qb8 (only move to avoid a rook discovered check winning the queen) 31. Rxc6+ Kg7 32. Qf5, White has a huge attack and looks winning.

  Chessical: <28. Rf6?! > is a coffee house move, <28. Qxc6> was sound and equal.

Tarrasch misses the threat to his <g6> square and gets mated after Spielmann kicks the foundations of his defences away with <30. Bxf7!>.
