  Honza Cervenka: HNP made quite a lot of positionally dubious decisions in this game starting from both trades of Bishops, which gave white semi-open files "f" and "a" and strenghtened his centre, and ending with pseudo-active advance h7-h5-h4-h3, which resulted in the loss of the (second) Pawn. Of course, 26...e4, which led to the loss of this Pawn in two moves, was not so great too, but alternatives did not look much better anyway. Of course, with two extra Pawns & compensation Tarrasch had an easy win here.
