  keypusher: Tartakower got a little too experimental in this game. 7....Be7 instead of his ...Ne7 shouldn't be too bad. After Mattison's 8.Bg5 (Na3 at once was probably better) Tartakower could have gotten a sort of development with 8....h6 9.Bf4 Ng6 10.Bg3 Be7. And at some point he had to play ...a6.

After Mattison's ingenious two-flank attack with 10.h4 Be7? 11.h5 Bxg5 12.Nb5 Qb8 13.hxg6, Black was already lost. 16...Rd8, allowing Mattison's Nxb7 and Be4, hastened Black's defeat.

Curiously, Mattison's two defeats of Tartakower both feature his KB skewering Tartakower's queen against the rook on a8.

  chancho: 17.Nd6+ Bxd6 18.exd6 Qxd6?? (apparently winning a pawn) is a no no.

19.Bg6+

Apr-02-11  Soylent Green: 17.Nd6+ Bxd6 18.exd6 Qxd6 19.Bg6+ Ke7, but 19.Ng5+ wins ...
Apr-02-11  Soylent Green: 17.Nd6+ Bxd6 18.Ng5+ wins immediately.

  chancho: <Soylent Green> I looked at it with Fritz 10, and yeah, 18.Ng5+ is murder.

I stand corrected.
