  Honza Cervenka: Tarrasch did not like 6...cxd4 as it opens e-file to the advantage of white. Also 15...Bxe5 was not good idea according to him. The exchange gives white an advantage of Bishop pair, enlarges radius of white dark-square Bishop and due to ousting of the knight from f6 it also exposes black Kingside to the attack of white. 23.Rc1 is decisive move. White threatens simply with 24.b4 or 24.Qc2 (x h7, c5) and both threats are unavoidable at once.
