Jul-20-18  Saniyat24: nice game by Maroczy, giving up his two Rooks, to corner the White King...!

  Retireborn: <Saniyat24> It's a fine finish. These positions with decisive piece play where the pawns are symmetrical and equal hold a strong aesthetic appeal, and here everything works very smoothly after 20...Rb1!

With 9.Rc1 White is leaving the beaten track (9.a4 and 9.0-0 are more usually seen.) Looking for other examples I found this game:-

Swiderski vs Schlechter, 1904

where the white king gets cornered in an optically similar way.

Monte Carlo 1904 was a triumph for Maroczy where he narrowly pipped Schlechter to first place; I wonder if he conciously remembered the old game of his rival, whilst playing this one!
