  Honza Cervenka:, Tarrasch played this game without queen because he gave it as odds to his opponent. Correct gamescore from the 9th move is 9. Rd1 Qg6 10. Rd8+ Kf7 11. Bc4+ Qe6 12. Nxe5# 1-0 (Source: S. Tarrasch - Dreihundert Schachpartieen)
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks, Honza. This game takes on a totally new meaning now!

  Honza Cervenka: The final of this game is very nice, isn't it?:-)
Nov-22-02  Cyphelium: The whole game consists of nothing more than a final. =)
Mar-09-03  Rookpawn: Black's style of moving only pawns (at least until his seventh move) is unlikely to attract imitators.
Dec-05-05  boowillo: I was thinking 9...Qxd1 10.Kxd1 Bg4

Seirawan gives 9..Bxc3+ 10.bxc3 NF6! 11.Rxd6 cxd6 white is out of threats and is up a rook...

Jan-03-09  WhiteRook48: Schroeder played so bad in this game.
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: Queen Odds, Tarrasch is very skilled in this game...
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: knight fork mate
Feb-17-09  WhiteRook48: <boowillo> don't you mean white is down a rook?
Apr-03-11  Llawdogg: I think Seirawan could have beaten Tarrasch at Queen odds.

  Nightsurfer: <Siegbert Tarrasch> and Aron Nimzowitsch have detested each other so much, yet the two archrivals have had something in common: both <Siegbert Tarrasch> and Aron Nimzowitsch have given Queen odds sometimes, just have a look at Nimzowitsch vs Leelaus, 1910!
