Jan-09-13  lost in space: Saw this game the first time roughly 30 years ago. I like the systematic approach how Black made use of the white weaknesses.

Nice game by Tarrasch.

  offramp: Poor Chigorin can never find a good spot to settle his queen, and his opponent plays likes a juggernaut.
May-03-15  Rama: An early example of the boa-constrictor attack.

  yiotta: I just feel White had to play f4 around move 20, although I can't back it up with anything concrete.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Black gained space and opened lines for his pieces and White did not. 20.f4 would have been a good time for that move. I also wondered why White didn't play c4-c5 at many places until I found a nice little trick for Black: for example, 35.c5,Qa2!
