  Honza Cervenka: The game was played in the last round of the tournament and both players were weary of previous fights. It rebounded in blindness which affected both of them during this game. Tarrasch's 15...Rd8 was a blunder. After the game one of spectators showed that white could have won immediately playing 16.Rfd1 thanks to weak back rank of black. If 16...Qe6, then 17.Bxc6 Nxc6 18.Qxc6! , if 16...Qf5, then 17.Bxc6 Nxc6 18.Rxd8+ Nxd8 19.Qe8#.

Another mistake was 28...Nxd3, but Burn once again missed a decisive shot 29.Rxg7+!

  Calli: "The game truly reveals the fatique which overcomes the players at the of a long tournament" - Tarrasch

Tarrasch was in first and 1 points ahead of Burn in 2nd place. Therefore the outcome only mattered if Burn lost and Mieses might tie him for 2-3.

  DarthStapler: I played 6...Bxc5 in a tournament recently and lost. This is a poor line for black, it gives white a lot of pressure
Sep-11-08  DoctorD: That is pure garbage. Black's position is in good shape if he knows how to handle it.
