  Chessical: Schlechter's aggressive play on the K-side causes Winawer to make a natural move that turns out to be a serious error.

<24...Ne5?> overlooks Schlechter's pressure on <h7>;[24...Nf8!? looks unattractive due to <f6>, but it is difficult to see how Schlechter could have forced a win, <24...Nf8> 25.f6 gxf6 26.Qxf6+ Kg8 27.Rf3 Ng6 28.Raf1 Re2

<27.Nxh7!> This seems to have eroded any will to resist Winawer may have had as with <29....Rh7?> he makes ae elementary blunder (<29...Kg8> is the only move) leading to mate <30.Rf8+> Rxf8 31.Qxf8.

Schlechter's performance here shows him using both his positional and combinational talents to polished effect.

  Chessical: <InspiredByMorphy> I cannot see anything wrong with <10..0-0>, as neither <11.Bb3> or <11.e5> then seem to be particularly dangerous for black.

Perhaps best would be <11.Bg5>, which could easily transpose back into the gane.

Nov-03-09  bengalcat47: I've observed that Black's development of his dark-squared bishop at c4 early in the Ruy Lopez is not good. As a rule this bishop is best developed at e2, where it can play an important part in Black's defenses. When developed at c4 the bishop often gets cut off from Black's King side and serves no real purpose on the other side of the board.
